While http://unicode.org/reports/tr14/ clearly states that:

When expanding or compressing interword space according to common
typographical practice, only the spaces marked by U+0020 SPACE and
U+00A0 NO-BREAK SPACE are subject to compression, and only spaces
marked by U+0020 SPACE, U+00A0 NO-BREAK SPACE, and occasionally spaces
marked by U+2009 THIN SPACE are subject to expansion. All other space
characters normally have fixed width.

… really sad to see the misunderstanding around U+00A0:
