chenpighead has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-text] automatic hyphens should repect all kinds of manual 
hyphens ==
Quote from the 
[spec.](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-text-3/#valdef-hyphens-auto),

> Automatic hyphenation opportunities within a word must be ignored if
 the word contains a conditional hyphen (&shy; or U+00AD), in favor of
 the conditional hyphen(s). However, if, even after breaking at such 
opportunities, a portion of that word is is still too long to fit on 
one line, an automatic hyphenation opportunity may be used.

However, I think the idea is to let automatic hyphenations always 
respect the manual ones, which include both conditional hyphens (&shy;
 or U+00AD) and unconditional hyphens (U+2010 or U+002D). So, I'd like
 to propose that we address this in the specification.
