#xFEFF is UTF BOM, and its use as ZWNBS is deprecated, isn't it?
Besides, it never was for this purpose. You meant zero-width joiner,
but it is not handled by XEP either.

What you actually need is to put every word you don't want to hyphenate
  into a keep-together="always" inline. Hyphen is not a word character,
when XEP meets it in unrestricted context, it can break the line on it.
To keep 's-' together with Gravenhage, you need

<inline keep-with-next.within-line="always">s-</inline>Gravenhage; to
override rules for Granvehage, include it into the list of exceptions
in the hyphenation table. Simple and straightforward, just say in XSL
FO what you want to get.
