Details, details :-), but you're right -- thats what it does.

I guess that means on pages where there are no links, and in which there
is nothing but controls, you can't use SPC to scroll.

I dont think it should be changed.  Custom buffers are essentially a
long form containing only buttons.  In order to SPC scroll you would
have to move point off the button, and that sounds very inconvenient.

Why not just keep it simple.  SPC scrolls.  ENTER activates.
