I think the interpretation of 'space under siege' typically refers to the units under siege, not the besieging units (but can't provide a reference for this).

I think the rule regarding this is based on an understanding of siege combat. Units under siege are 'locked inside' that siege, and can't go off to fight a foreign war (indeed, can't go off to fight anywhere as they're trapped inside). Units laying siege, however, have some freedom to move about, can leave the siege situation if they want, and thus can go off to fight a foreign war.
