Re: VMs: Split -ol- pairs...?

"o l" Graphs here:
To me, a language (like Currier Language A) where "l" was overwhelmingly
preceded by "o" but where that pair sometimes has a space inserted between
them, points to spaces being "plastic" (i.e. malleable, able to be inserted
at will) rather than syntactic.
Yet with other character pairs being almost entirely word-initial (like
"qo") or word-terminal (like "dy"), there also appear to be rigid rules
associated with spaces.
So, some VMs spaces are "hard" (rule-based), while other VMs spaces are
"soft" (discretionary). In particular, many soft spaces seem to me to have
been inserted specifically to break up visual repetitions of verbose pairs:
I've mentioned "oro.ror" in the past (as hiding "or.or.or"), and many split
"ol" pairs (like "chodo.lol" on f1v, hiding "chod.ol.ol") appear to have
the same intention.
All of this simply screams out "Cipher!" to me - but what subtle language
nuance am I missing which might explain this?
