Spaces left when highlighting and deleting a word

I’m not sure whether this qualifies as a bug, but I couldn’t find it addressed elsewhere in the forum. In the latest beta (and possibly in earlier versions – I’m not sure), when I double-click on a word to highlight it and then delete it, the surrounding spaces are unaffected, so you end up with two spaces left between the two surrounding words. Other word processing programs that I’ve used (e.g., Word and Google Docs) highlight both the word and the following space when you double-click on it, eliminating this problem. It’s not a huge deal, just a slight annoyance. Are there any plans to change this in the future?
