Thank you for your feedback. The CSSWG has addressed your concerns in the upcoming publication of the CSS 2.1 specification[1]. 

The CSSWG resolved to make the change from "forced line break" to "line feed".

We hope this closes your issue.

Please respond before 14 March, 2011 if you do not accept the current resolution.
