The spec defines word-break:break-all[1] as:
> In addition to normal opportunities,
> lines may break between any two letters within words.
> Hyphenation is not applied.
But this should exclude where breaks are forbidden by the line-break[2] property.

Suggested fix is:
> lines may break between any two letters within words
> except where forbidden by the line-break property.
