Oh,  I forgot: VoiceOver's behavior is simply due to a bug in Webkit: The test
page I pointed to above shows that Webkit is the only webbrowser which treats a
span element as a line-break opportunity.

So, we *could* solve the issue by changing the semantics of <wbr> *and* instead
of saying that <wbr> is equal to wbr{content:"\00200B"},  say that it is equal
to wbr{display:inline-block}.
