I'd expect that people who use SPC for completion are pretty seasoned Emacs
users, so they shouldn't be too annoyed by having to add

   (define-key minibuffer-completion-map " " 'minibuffer-complete-word)

in their .emacs.  Adding an option for it would only be useful for people
who configure their Emacs exclusively with Custom.
