Please don't make it too easy to insert a NBSP, except in text modes.
Subreptitious insertion of NBSP in code is a pain the <beep>.

I just helped someone who suffered from "in C++ every once in a while, the
SPC after << turns into a char \240 which I can't see in Emacs but on which
gcc burps".  It turns out the problem is that to insert a < on his keyboard
he needs to hit Alt-, and he often wasn't careful enough to release the Alt
before hitting the subsequent SPC and Alt-SPC on his keyboard sends an NBSP.

So you can understand I'm not looking forward to Shift-SPC inserting
an NBSP.
