I should take that back - there isn't a behavior defined enough to be compliant or not.

It seems everybody here agrees though that generated content shouldn't be applicable to <BR> so when this behavior is in fact defined I expect it is to be defined that way.

I see nothing in the standard prohibiting it, frankly.  Can you point me to the

CSS doesn't define _what_ elements are replaced, just what to do with one that is.
