Hmmm. I thought the sentence was clear, but having re-read it a couple
 times, I see what you mean. I've pushed a rewording with a couple of 
clarifying notes. I think this now defines all cases. Let me know if 
you think it doesn't.

the white-space property

Since this value only affects what happens in runs of preserved white 
space, in most cases, it will not do anything if the white-space 
property is not preserving the white spaces. The difference with what 
you are suggesting is that as currently specified, it would also call 
for breaks in overflowing runs of &amp;nbsp;. I'd rather keep it that 
way: I'd find it pretty counter intuitive if a value called 
break-spaces did not do that.

If you agree, great. If you don't (and there's no other issue left), 
can we get this merged, and open a separate issue to discussed this
