Actually, I think there is another solution to this problem, which does not need anything new to be added to the spec.
white-space: pre;
overflow-wrap: break-word;
or depending on how you feel about breaks in consecutive runs of spaces maybe
white-space: pre;
overflow-wrap: break-word break-spaces;
That way, the fact that `overflow-wrap:break-word` only applies if there's no other break point is countered by the fact that `white-space:pre` has cancelled other break points.

So you would get
|foo bar baz.|

@littledan, would this solve your problem, or does it have undesirable side effects?
