NON-BREAKING SPACE and NARROW NON-BREAKING SPACE are characters whose intent is clear and who are used by knowledgeable users and smart software, for example LibreOffice with an fr_FR locale.  I don’t know about the other characters listed by Serhiy, and I wouldn’t worry about them unless users requested support for them or another core dev explained why they should be supported.

A comment at the start of the module (where _whitespace, used in the patch here, is defined) even talks about NBSP; it is focused on bytes though and should be updated for the Python 3 unicode world.
