Note that the spec has this usecase - which seems congruent with the zero width
space character:

]] something which, for effect, is written as one long word [[

Whereas your usecase seems to be a single, long word which, for non-linguistic 
(read: parser technical) reasons should be treated as individual words (rather
than as the single word that is in reality is) separated by the <wbr> element.
