Basicaly you are right, don't imagine any use of
whitespaces at the end of line.

BTW.: Got a hint concerning an error in the previous
draft. Here a better one:

(defun last-non-white-space-on-line ()
  " "
  (skip-chars-backward " \t"))

;; To do it with  (delete-horizontal-space):    

(defun last-non-white-space-on-line ()
  " "
  ;;   (skip-chars-backward " \t")
  (backward-char 1))
