I don't think `overflow-wrap: anywhere` is the right term. It makes it sound more like the `word-wrap: break-all` logic.

I think `overflow-wrap: break-min` is a closer representation of what the point of the keyword is. `break-min` more explicitly tells the user that they are breaking the rules around `min-content` for that element.

Is the goal with this new syntax to only set `min-content` to zero regardless of what content is inside it? or are we trying to make a single keyword do 2 things, set `min-content` to zero and also apply `word-break` functionality?

I think it would be best to go with some sort of syntax that only does the one thing of setting the width of `min-content` to zero and have a separate bit of CSS control how the text wraps.
