What about a new keyword for that property? "line-break-before: force"
could always insert a line break even if there is already one (whereas
"always" only produces line breaks if there is not).

On the other hand, you could just use this:

  br {line-break-after: always; content: "\FEFF"; }

which is very close to what the <br> actually does in the tag soup
browsers you mentioned.
