RCE replacing unicode U+2007 Figure Space with space

In order to decimal align values in a table I had used   the Unicode character for FIGURE SPACE, but RCE turns this into a space. Is there a reason not to preserve the actual character that the user entered?

Entering in HTML mode:

<p>The numeric space is "&numsp;", a Figure space is "&#8199;", and a space is " ".</p>

<table>
<caption>Test of some spaces</caption>
<body>
<tr><th>Numeric space</th><th>Figure space</th><th>space</th></tr>
<tr><td>1&numsp;1</td><td>1&#8199;1</td><td>1 1</td>
</body>
</table>

Results in after returning to HTML mode:

<p>The numeric space is " ", a Figure space is " ", and a space is " ".</p>
<table><caption>Test of some spaces</caption>
<tbody>
<tr>
<th>Numeric space</th>
<th>Figure space</th>
<th>space</th>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>1 1</td>
<td>1 1</td>
<td>1 1</td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>

The result visually is:

You will notice that the numbers in the table are the same distance apart in the first two columns, but a different distance in the third column. Is there some reason for this strange behavior? The above is at Spaces: Chip sandbox  and the table I am decimal aligning is at Table for decimal alignment: Chip sandbox .
