I agree, not displaying anything at all is not so nice either.
It is nicer if one can find something there when stepping over it and
delete the U+FE0E, that is really more "Emacsy", I think.

Like when I have “AA” (U+0041 U+FEFF U+0041) I can still move the cursor
over that string and find that there is something between the two As,
check what that is, delete it if I want ...  

So a thin 1-pixel space sounds good to me, it does not look ugly but one
can still edit it.

But currently I don’t seem to get a thin 1-pixel space for

Ⓜ︎ U+24C2 U+FE0E

I get a box with a 1 pixel border in the foreground colour (black) and
this box has a total width of 6 pixels. See attached screenshot.

This looks fairly ugly is a bit too much maybe.

You get a 1-pixel space? Is special setup needed to get that or should
I get that by default?
