Maybe we could also push the design a bit further and provide shorter

the main issue is how to quickly start selecting a rectangle.
I.e. a good key binding for rectangle-mark.

Maybe steal M-SPC from just-one-space since it is similar to C-SPC and
works well in gui and tty. We could fold just-one-space into
delete-horizontal-space somehow.

Good idea. I completely agree. I don't think I've ever deliberately used just-one-space; I always go for delete-horizontal-space or delete-indentation to cover just-one-space's job. If we do end up using M-SPC, though, it'll be important to remind users that they can also run the command as ESC SPC (which is convenient enough): many popular window managers steal M-SPC for bringing up a window menu.
