Ok, sorry.

No, both properties are implemented (the letter spacing only partially).
When the word spacing is not .min == .max == 0 it is used to define the
inline progression dimension of a space; otherwise, a default value is used
Letter spacing is used too, but at the moment only its .opt value is used,
so letter spacing will be the same in every line of the paragraph. The
problem is that Knuth's algorithm doesn't explicitly take into account
letter space.
