That sounds somewhat reasonable. What if there are multiple subpaths?  
Overflow to the first subpath in the path? What if that first subpath  
isn't closed?

Sounds like something for a new property, or perhaps we could reuse the  
'text-overflow' property for this? In that case what you're asking for  
would require a new value 'wrap' for the 'text-overflow' property.
