That is one way to look at it.

Another is to say "text within <nowrap> loses its wrapping capabilities". That would greatly simplify boundary issues. It would make <nowrap>_space_</nowrap> behave as non-breaking space which may sometimes be surprising but logical and consistent.

I strongly disagree with this. If there is normally a break
opportunity between x and y (e.g. if x and y are kanji) then
there should be a break opportunity between <nowrap>x</nowrap>
and <nowrap>y</nowrap>.
