Use-cases were presented by Maciej in bug 9350, where he pointed out that its
behavior does not match zwsp or any construct specifiable using CSS. 
Specifically, it overrides white-space:

"""
The wbr element is expected to override the 'white-space' property and always
provide a line-breaking opportunity.
"""
