    To get Dropword to add a space when it removes the Dropword isn’t a problem. But it could mess the text up pretty badly if it did that! For instance, what if the word on the previous line ends with a maqaf?
    By the way, when Dropword removes the dropword, all it’s doing is searching for a manual linee break followed by a tab and deleting them (I can’t remember offhand if it applies a special “marker” character style to that combination to make it easier to find afterwards; I think not). You could do exactly the same manually with find/change. So if you wanted to, you could save your own find/change and replace with a space rathen than with nothing.
