A leftover from the discussion at the F2F is that we still need to determine if authors will need to write `word-break: break-all; line-break: break-all;` or just `line-break: break-all` to get the effect discussed in this issue, which is to allow breaks absolutely anywhere.

The former would be needed if `line-break: break-all` only allows for breaks anywhere around punctuation, and we still need to apply `word-break: break-all` to allow for breaks anywhere within words, and the later would be sufficient if `line-break: break-all` on its own did both.

@r12a: To answer that, we would need your input and feedback from the i18n group to know if there are languages for which it would be desirable to control these separately. Specifically, is it ever useful to allow line breaks anywhere around punctuation while disallowing them within words?
