That's good to know. I kind of like \xspace. :( That said, I think this would be very hard to get right most of the time, so I'm just going to close it as Won't Fix, since I don't see myself actually getting around to it.

Using \xspace is a bad idea according to https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/86620 .

ChkTeX should not give the warning "command terminated with space" when the macro had the \xspace command at its end.
