> It's not just this character. isspace() is also False for \u200c and \u200d (from the same category). and \u2060, \u2800 and \ufeff

What reason do you have to believe that they should be classified as
whitespace, other than the web page you are quoting (which is apparently
out of date, and the fact that Python 2.6 was classifying
them this way, which are also out of date for the very same reason)?
