Two-spacing is ugly in proportional fonts.
It’s less work to press the space bar once instead of twice.
It’s pretty much arbitrary anyway, so why bother with two?
Number 1 is irrelevant, because writing and rendering are (except in trivial cases) two orthogonal activities.
Number 2 isn’t very convincing.
Number 3 is false, because two-spacing gives you two advantages over one-spacing:
It looks better in your editor.
It gives you more power when editing and parsing.
