No, I think your initial suggestion was right. There is no reason to
display characters in fixed-pitch in the buffer with a buffer list
and to put additional space when Buffer-menu-use-header is nil.
Moreover, I don't understand why displaying text in the header line
needs special treatment by adding the space and using special fonts?
Why the header line can't start at the left fringe? The header line
is often used as a fixed part of the buffer that doesn't scroll,
so it makes sense to line it up with the buffer and to use the same
font in which its buffer is displayed.
