Perhaps a team member can come in? And corrects this/explains this better:

0x200B is probably not in LC's word-break table (for word wrapping)
because it is usually used to indicate optional hyphenation locations.
And there is no hyphenation in LC's field implementation. So it would
be wrong to add this to the (full-)word-break table.

And the hair space (0x200A) is, of course, of advantage against a space
only if you don't use a fixed-width font.
