This is not a solution, I can't just put a normal space and rely on
emacs to DTRT. For instance, if I am writing an HTML page, even if a
space is obviously unbreakable, I must put a NBSP. If I am writing some
text together with someone else, I can't assume that his text editor
will DTRT. And even when writing an email, if someone quotes my text and
re-warp it, I don't want those obviously unbreakable spaces to be

So NBSP is useful, and emacs should handle it properly.
