I'm not sure that is correct. Elimination of spaces at the end of lines
has always been something you could enable (either directly as a setting
in the mode, which might be enabled by default, or via a package like
whitespace.el. I think it would be going against Emacs philosophy to
have a mode automatically remove end of line spaces - this should be
something the user controls.

Of course, the converse is also true. It would be a mistake to have an
Emacs mode add additional whitespace at the end of lines which is not
requested by the user as well. This could also cause issues/conflicts
with packages like whitespace.el or diffs and VCS etc. It may also make
source blocks 'ugly' if you have your Emacs configured to show
additional whitespace at eol.
