We already have `text-overflow` in [css-ui-3](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-ui-3/) that does something similar, but line by line, instead of the whole paragraph.

For the whole paragraph, this is something we're aware of, and have started working on, but it is actually a surprisingly difficult problem. Have a look at [css overflow 4](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-overflow-4/), starting at [Fragmentation of overflow](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-overflow-4/#fragmentation) and everything below, for the project that might eventually end up delivering this.

I expect this will happen eventually, but don't hold your breath.
