Say I'm gonna make some kind of game maker application, where user can create 
game objects. It sure the game objects need name as their identifier. For ease 
of use, I can make object's name more space-char-friendly because the user of 
the application is not always a programmer (they even can't understand why an 
object's name can't accept space char).

If the compiler supports space char inside identifier's name, I don't need to do 
some kind of convertion from game maker object's name to internal game maker 
identifier's name because I can grab it directly from the application. Of 
course, I can translate game maker objects name into Object1 to ObjectN, but 
it's not favorable. :)
