I agree with the idea that the space between sentences should be
greater than the spacing between words.  It is a visual clue, that
separates two sentences, but also, more beautiful.

If can't be that way, we should ask, why is allowed (in english) to
start a paragraph without a space with the previous one, trusting the
visual separation to an discrete indentation in the first line.
