It's a beastly practice held over from the time when it was useful
(that is, when typesetters set the type from the typescript), and I
wouldn't use it in monowidth typesetting either.
I am rereading the Lord of the Rings, and have noticed that my copy,
which I have had since I was 14, was typeset with double spacing
between the sentences. I am considering buying a new copy, much as I
love my old ones....
