Each case is unique.
In this case we don't have a strong rationale for being different.
We should match CLDR within reason.
We could switch to NBSP, and just wait for the CLDR ticket to be
resolved, and then switch back to NNBSP and we would both match.
The goal is to try harmonize this data across the various
implementations. There is nothing more frustrating for users
than to have different display data like this.
Does that make sense?
