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

== [css-text] impact of unstyled inlines on hyphenation ==
Should unstyled inlines affect hyphenation? In other words should `high<span>way</span>` or `highwa<span>y</span>` be allowed to hyphenate differently from `highway`?

We have a general principle that unstyled inlines don't affect anything, but I can't put my finger on anything that turns this general principle on actionable spec text in the case of hyphenation.

I suggest adopting the related wording from `text-transform`, and adding it to the hyphens property definition:

> For the purpose of the `hyphens` property, what constitutes a “word“ is UA-dependent. However, out-of-flow elements and inline element boundaries must be ignored when determining word boundaries.
