I tried to set sentence-end-double-space to nil, but reverted back to t
because paragraphs with sentences separated by double space are easier to read
when editing text using a monospaced font in Emacs (there is no such problem
with proportional fonts in web browsers).

Yes, maybe a separate command is needed, e.g. M-x sentence-use-double-space
that would recognize single-space that doesn't separate an abbreviation
and insert additional space.
