Uh, no. <ZWNBSP, SPACE, ZWNBSP> is equivalent to <NBSP>. In either
case, the SPACE or the NBSP would be (potentially) subject to
justification which would change their width.
The argument was about how (or whether) to constrain the space
between "Louis" and "XIV" to a *fixed* width under certain
assumptions about justification. To do that, you would need to
use a *fixed*-width space as a starting point (and then hope that
the justification algorithm used for rendering doesn't ignore
or override your choice, anyway).
