Ah, ok, so "otherwise-acceptable break points" include hyphenation 
points. I just didn't interpret that way, but I'm fine with the 
conclusion.

IIRC this sentence doesn't intend that; its intention is "can break at
 non-hyphenation points, and does not insert hyphenation character," 
because we thought otherwise it may be misunderstood for Latin 
speakers.

Also, `break-all` and `break-word` look two variation features of a 
same feature group to me, having hyphenation in between the two looks 
weird.
