I think some of you i18n folks are responding to something that isn't
the text Koji is editing. The text is quoted in full in this message:
   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2011Jan/0667.html
It's a non-normative introduction to line-breaking.

I get the feeling Koji is triggering some reflexive reactions here
due to the terminology under discussion, which is unfair not only
because it assumes he's fully clueless (which he's not), but also
because it means he doesn't get a response to his actual queries.
