Wrong example. My concern is

zsh -c "ls TAB"

It is _here_ it should escape spaces:

itsrm2% ls "
a b/       c d/       uudecode/

O.K. (just lists filenames verbatim) 

itsrm2% zsh -c "ls
a\\ b      c\\ d      uudecode/

wrong (upon dequoting of matches). Second TAB:

itsrm2% zsh -c "ls a\\ b
a\\ b      c\\ d      uudecode/

so correctly escaped filename is inserted but is not unquoted when
testing for file type.

May be it should; but then it becomes increasingly more complicated with
nested quotes. Besides, you may want to continue quoted word ...
