That's probably more like an RFC, not just an Apache policy decision.  If
you want a space in your URL you have to encode it with %20, like

  http://www.riverstyx.net/test%20.html
= http://www.riverstyx.net/test .html

I think applying a little sed or awk would probably be more efficient than
hacking Apache.
