If BAP != 0 then a Knuth box element is inserted. This acts as a fence for
removeTrailingSpaces(), that is removeTrailingSapces() cannot distinguish
if the Box represents an actual word in the text or is a border/padding
space reservation and stops removal once it sees a Box. So, yes IMO your
algorithm does not produce a proper result but removeTrailingSpaces()
hides this unless we have border/padding intervening.
