You are right, of course. There has already been a thread about it, 
and I recall your own message (see
http://tug.org/pipermail/xetex/2006-November/005518.html) where you
stated the following:

"The way XeTeX works is perfectly fine and I don't think this really 
needs to be changed. It is possible to implement contextual features 
like the one in the sample font without relying on the space glyph."
