For space characters, I only care if it's a *trailing* space -- since
that is important for certain simplified markup languages like Pug and
Markdown, and cleaning up trailing spaces is often required in
different code style guides -- or if it's a "hard" (non-breaking)
space.

I want normal spaces to be *invisible*, as long as they appear between
words, or at the beginning of indented lines.

The Adaptive Wrap prefix shows all those dots representing spaces. I
assume it's not using hard spaces, because that would be weird. And
these spaces are added to the beginning of the soft-wrapped lines, not
the end, so they aren't really trailing spaces either, right? In any
case, the dots are not *colored* as if they were either hard or
trailing spaces; the dots in the wrap prefix are instead rendered in
the buffer default colors, for some reason.

So it seems to me that those dots should be invisible, just like they
would be if I hard-wrapped the lines, since hard-wrapping is the
behavior Adaptive Wrap tries to simulate in its display.
