* I sharte Rouven's concerns.

* My comment in Bug 9350 questions that there is any use case - there are only
bad and misundestood implementations:
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=9350#c8

* In particular, browsers vary to a high degree: Bug 9711, in particular
comment 2: http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=9711#c2

* In fact, <wbr> should not only become obsolete - it should also only have
effect at all in quirks mode: Bug 13120.
