mutable buffer implements most of the string transformation methods. Space is a notable exception.
my personal preference is that
mb ~ space()
would edit the mutable buffer mb.
Extracting values from the buffer for the purposes of
examination can already be done by the classic function
space( mb )
You seem to have CSS turned off.

Dear Mr McGuire,
I also lack the space method (and function) for Mutable Buffers. This is my current replacement
tt = tt~translate(' ','0d0a09'x)~Changestr(' ',' ') / my own space method /
Ugly but is works. a ~space would be more elegant!
I tried a patch: https://sourceforge.net/p/oorexx/patches/171/
A remark to P.O. :
'20'x (space) and '09'x (TAB) are considered whitespace.
'0D'x (CR) and '0A'x (LF) are not, you'll still have to translate them.
