I agree generally with everything you said.  Wrt showing no-break space and
non-breaking hyphen so that you can distinguish them from SPC and ASCII hyphen,
`show-wspace.el' can help.

There are commands that toggle the distinguishing display of each on/off, and
you can customize the faces used for that.  Quick toggling is helpful, because
most of the time you don't care about the difference, but you can easily check.
