Yes, I think it would be a real problem.

I use S-SPC to toggle the X input method, and am _constantly_
triggering it by mistake, even though I'm (obviously) very aware of
the problem and try not to.  As you can imagine this usually happens
when typing a space after entering a capitalized word or shifted
symbol -- my shift-key release reflex is often just a little too slow.
