I don't think it indicates use cases either way, it indicates that people are unintentionally relying on it *not having an effect* in certain shrinkwrap cases (and being upset that it doesn't in others). Which is a case for being more specific about where it's applied.

Note that it should affect the min-content size, but not the max-content size; I can't see any reason for the testcase in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1476180 failing.

If tables are a particular problem, adding `table { overflow-wrap: normal; }`  to the UA stylesheet could be considered. Then the author can adjust their approach if necessary. (Given that data frequently gets stacked side-by-side and is especially likely to get unexpectedly squashed, this is a pretty reasonable style rule to add.)
