Thinking a bit about it, why not? Upon saving, convert
all spaces to the ASCII
space. If someone legitimately needs another space, he can and should use
HTML entity. Someone who uses another space simply creates confusion for
other editors who have no way to differ it from the ordinary space.
Just not nbsp - it's widely used on Russian Wikipedia, and no-one
wants to replace it with an entity.
