The Spacebar, due to its distinctive shape and length, is probably the
most prone to sticky substance (e.g. Coke)-caused slow responsiveness,
as a single sticky point can slow down the whole bar.

Also, unlike the Enter key, the Spacebar doesn't have a duplicate.

I think keyboard manufacturers can horizontally divide the long
Spacebar into two or three (or even more) shorter Spacebars, each
producing the same Spacebar scan code. If multiple Spacebars are
pressed simultaneously, they will be considered as a single bar.

Back in the second half of the 1990s, Compaq did do just that with some of
their keyboards, and it was extremely annoying.
