Here is the relevant text. In fact, it does not define the behaviour by

  The 'tbreak' element is an empty element that forcibly breaks the
  current line of text. Multiple consecutive tbreak elements have the
  same effect on rendering as a single tbreak.

Please let us know within two weeks if this satisfies your comment.
