I think [[:space:]] obeys the syntax table,
and that is not good.

Why not? :

Not to lobby the concept of syntax-tables as such, but

"The syntax table is relevant only for a buffer.
This has nothing to do with any particular buffer."

AFAIU  just the syntax of the current buffer  will be used
- where is the problem?

A white space is a white space is a white space ...

its up to the mode and the syntax with it to define - if its wrong defined, it's not lisp to blame for.
