Forgot to add: <br> *is* copied to the clipboard as a linefeed character (at
least it results in a linefeed when pasting into plain text). Therefore it does
not make sense to not copy <wbr> as a ZWSP character to the clipboard. The fact
that <wbr> is not currently copied to the clipboard has nothing to do with its
"element features" as opposed to ZWSP's "character features". If users need a
way to copy e.g. source code examples without zwsp in the clipboard, then this
needs to be solved in a different way.
