I suggest non breakable spaces should be treated as normal spaces inside [[...]]

It's nice to avoid a linebreak in that position, even though it's perhaps not a
very grave error. In other languages there are worse instances. When searching
for earlier suggestions about this I found one (that I will now remove) at
that in particular mentioned space before interpunction in a French example such as

What happens for page names that actually have a literal non-breaking space in
them? They would become inaccessible (note bug 6790)? Requiring literal nbsps
(which generally look identical to normal spaces) somewhere, or indeed arguably
treating them different from in the first place, is probably a bad idea.
Non-breaking space _shouldn't_ actually be allowed in titles, since it can't be
typed or saved in article text generally. Any such title is inherently broken,
and can be cleaned up by script after the fix.
Works now, but I do not know since which revision for reference.
