Motion 100-M1 carries
[100-M2] Motion: In Unicode 4.1, U+00A0 NO-BREAK SPACE is the preferred base as opposed to U+0020 SPACE.

Add U+00A0 NO-BREAK SPACE to "aletter" in Unicode Standard Annex #29: Text Boundaries. U+0020 SPACE is still a base character, but it does not change its properties. [L2/04-234]
