> The fact that this kind of line-breaking isn't implemented anywhere in any line-breaking utility library is concerning. It's difficult to believe that CSS is the first place where software engineers have ever wanted this line breaking behavior. 

I know of two places that have that.

InDesign has the two behaviors, although they're entangled with something else: depending on whether you justify on or, you get something like `normal` or something like `keep-all-hangul`.

It also exists in the Bloomberg Terminal. That previously ran on proprietary software, and now runs on a modified browser engine, which has this ability. They use the `keep-all-hangul` style as their default line breaking style (in at least some of the applications. I don't have access to a Bloomberg Terminal to check if it's everywhere).
