I’n not sure is going to change this because the reference parser
removes trailing/leading spaces in references. One shouldn’t forgot
the reference commands accept more than simple references to
a section, float etc. but also hyperlinks to other pages (first, last etc.)
or external documents.

BTW: The code which removes the space in reference is on strc-rsc.lua
