these machines default to only 1;

I gather that's mostly a throwback to the days of typewriters and monospace fonts, where the extra space made it easier to read. Some style guides still suggest double spaces, others don't, some even use some other spacing, e.g. 1.5 size space rather than 2. So it depends which publisher's guide you go by. In HTML, putting several spaces still only displays a single space anyway, unless you specifically add non-breaking spaces.
