I agree with Liam that "future-editability should probably not be 
conflated with wrapping," and more strongly that editability concerns 
should not constrain wrapping choices. In some cases you want to edit 
with stable upstream line breaks, and in other cases you want to edit 
with the best line breaks over all the content. So a separate property
 expressing editing preferences is warranted. It should be possible to
 satisfy both text-wrap:multiline and an edit preference set to stable
 by starting an n-line window with the line just above the cursor.

I didn't consider adding a note with algorithm suggestions. I expect 
that Liam's n-line optimization is the right suggestion, but maybe 
someone can come up with something better. Perhaps a separate issue 
would help?
