So there must be a general happy medium here, which I always thought
was the em-space. 
And that goes back to my earlier comment about en and em quads in hand
set type.  A slightly wider space makes it easier to read, because of
the way we recognize objects.

I just tried a little experiment.  I typed a sentence, with a period at
the end.  I then started typing the next sentence with a lower case n. 
I then placed the cursor directly over the first vertical line in the
n.  After I finished the word, the n changed to upper case and the first
vertical line moved to the right, so it was no longer under the cursor
and resulting space was wider.  I tried again with an i as the first
letter and the same thing happened, but the shift was not as great.
