>I think a much simpler model would be that letter-spacing increases (or decreases) the advance width of all typographic units equally on both sides, so that the glyph remains centered (typically) within its advance. Or in other words, half of the letter-spacing is applied to each of the left and right sidebearings of the glyph.

This is exactly what I proposed further up in the discussion. However it is not necessary because you can simply include the spaces in the tag: `word<letter-spacing> word <letter-spacing>word`
We don't need special treatment in that regard.
As a German I care more about getting an extra spacing **html tag** with correct letter spacing see https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/5709
