Not only do some older browsers have trouble with this scheme of URL encoding, but files names with spaces in them are not cross-platform compatible - many older *NIX type OSes do not allow any spaces in the name of a file, and you want your visitors to your site to be able to download these files without having to worry about this. Although you are right, it is sometimes just a better idea to play it as safe as possible, especially on the web.
