Ok, so the final text at the moment says to skip:
   * all characters in Unicode general category Z
   * all "word separator" characters, as defined in CSS3 Text:
     currently includes the space (U+0020), the no-break space (U+00A0),
     the Ethiopic word space (U+1361), the Aegean word separators (U+10100,U+10101),
     the Ugaritic word divider (U+1039F), the Phoenician Word Separator (U+1091F)

Comments welcome.
