sideshowbarker has just submitted a new pull request for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-text-3] Normatively disallow break-word ==
This change adds a normative “Authors must not” statement prohibiting authors from using the (deprecated) break-word value with the word-break property.

This change aligns with similar normative author-conformance prohibitions in other specs which define certain features as deprecated; see, for example, the language used in the Media Queries spec with regard to the deprecated device-width, etc., media features:

https://drafts.csswg.org/mediaqueries-4/#mf-deprecated
> The following media features are deprecated. They are kept for
> backward compatibility, but are not appropriate for newly written style
> sheets. Authors must not use them.
