I am not sure if you should use durations rather than dottedness.
Should a dotted 64th need a lot of space to accomodate for the dot,
or should it be treated like a very short note?

A dotted, beamed note gets automatically more horizontal space due to
the dot(s); I think nothing should change in this case.  This holds
for beamed notes in general.  Regarding flagged notes, I'm not sure,
but many flagged notes in succession are rather rare.
Not in vocal music, where \autoBeamOff is the norm.

The additional
space I envision should be applied to notes only which don't have a
beam or a flag.
