Well, to do anything useful, sure, but since the value implies a UA 
defined algorithm, they can do whatever they want anyway, and we 
cannot test the difference. So putting must on a non testable 
statement isn't doing very much.

If an implementation does not support the value, it will fall back to 
whatever the cascade says it should fallback to, which may or may not 
be `wrap` depending on how the stylesheet is written.

Allowing implementations to support `multi-line` while not doing 
anything smart (but recommending that they do something smart) may 
provide a more robust fallback story: when a browser knows the value, 
even if it doesn't have any particular smart line-breaking logic, it 
falls back on something that wraps, rather than on whatever the 
cascade says.
