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

== [css-text-3] Segment Break Transformation Rules and wbr ==
The [Segment Break Transformation Rules](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-text-3/#line-break-transform) allow text like this:
```
aaaa&#x200b;
bbbb
```
to be rendered as if it were
```
aaaa&#x200b;bbbb
```


This is nice, but in other circumstances, using U+200B does the same thing as using `<wbr>`. Since this rule does not speak of `<wbr>`,
```
aaaa<wbr>
bbbb
```
would be rendered into
```
aaaa<wbr> bbbb
```
rather than
```
aaaa<wbr>bbbb
```
That seems unfortunate, as `<wbr>` is largely the same as U+200B except with the ability to be targeted by selectors.
