FWIW I am using NXP LPC microcontrollers at the moment, whose bootloader uses the grave/backtick instead of spaces. (NXP application note AN11229.)  Although in practice it does seem to accept Python's spaces instead of graves.

I wouldn't put too much weight to Wikipedia, especially where it says graves are not used for encoded data (vs length and padding). Earlier versions of Wikipedia did mention graves in regular data.

I understand the reason for avoiding spaces is to due to spaces being stripped (e.g. by email, copy and paste, etc). You have to avoid spaces in data, not just padding, because a data space may still appear at the end of a line.
