And how would you want TeX to respond to an ancronym such as UN or 

It would not be difficult to set up a series of macros such as
\def\A{ A}
\def\B{ B}
...which would insert a (possibly superfluous) space in front of every 
cap, but sensing whether the next letter was also a cap would be more 

A Vim macro might be able to handle the acronym problem but the 
prospect of writing it makes my head hurt. Or while using vim one 
could enter:
:%s/[A-Z]/ &/gc
and hit y or n depending on the nature of the occurrence found. 
I just tested this and it works but is tedious.

 I suggest just proofreading, unless you have a document where such 
mistakes occur often.
