Recommended list of characters for the line-break property[1] currently defines following code points as "inseparable characters":
U+2014, U+2025, U+2026, U+3033, U+3034, U+3035

I think we should include U+2015 in this list for the following reasons:
1. The text-justify property[2] defines U+2015 as "no expansion opportunity" along with U+2014, U+2025, U+2026.
2. JLREQ says "Some systems implement U+2015 HORIZONTAL BAR very similar behavior to U+2014 EM DASH"[3]
