No, I was asking about this particular context.  You are trimming
whitespace from file names, is that right?  Can NBSP appear in file
names on macOS?  Can it be appended/prepended to file names by some
other software, without being part of the file names, in the usage
scenario you want to support?

Emacs's [:blank:] already supports the full Unicode definition, so
that's not the issue.  The issue is what is TRT in this particular
context.  I don't use macOS X, so I simply don't know the answers to
those questions, and I'm asking you and those who do know to please
provide enough background for us to make the right decision in this
