A command ends at the point where anything other than a command starts.
A space is one such possibility and perfectly fine.

The warning has more to do with a common mistake TeX-newbies make. Many
users tend to forget that space after a command is very likely to be
gobbled up. So this warning should perhaps read "in case you expect a
space in output at this point, you forgot to explicitly tell TeX so".
