This is being considered, but this is a surprisingly difficult problem
 to solve well. The existing solutions you refer to work in some 
simple cases, and fall apart in the general case.

The eventual solution is expected to use the 
[max-lines](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-overflow/#max-lines) property
 and the 
[continue](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-overflow/#fragmentation) 
property (possibly renamed) to define where your content should be 
cut, and what happens to the remaining part after the cut, and 
probably a (yet to be specified) pseudo element to define what gets 
inserted to show the ellipsis.
