I wasn't aware of this possibility, but spaces *are* useful for

  c4->-.( \tweak #'slur-style #'foo \(\cr \tweak #'extra-offset #(3 . 1) 
-\markup{ blah }

I'd hate to do this kind of thing without spaces.  I mean...
  c4->-.(\tweak #'slur-style #'foo \(\cr\tweak #'extra-offset #(3 . 1)-\markup{ 
blah }

I'm not certain if this would even compile.

I guess we could say "a whitespace followed by a pitch or duration
signals the beginning of a new note".
