Well, I don't know exactly how NBSP should be handled, and in fact both
solutions could make sense.

The current behavior annoys me because I make the French quotation mark
'«' insert '«  »' and put the point between the NBSP, because french
quotations should be « like this », and if auto-fill mode gets in my way
while I fill the quotation, I loose the NBSP.

Concerning whitespace, a quick 'fgrep '" \t"' -r .' in the emacs source
shows quite lot of place where this is still used to match whitespace
instead of using the whitespace syntax, even in fill.el, so it's a bit
