I have never seen e.g. 2-3 words in the last line being justified. Because  
there is no justifiable(!) reason to do so, and it is very much unreadable.

However, for the really pragmatic, there could be a "max-justify-gap"  
property, which, if exceeded, will cause the line to be aligned left (or  
right, depending on direction).
