Line breaking and prohibitions in CSS is supposed to be language senstive. So it would be perfectly reasonable for UAs to allow-before/forbid-after if `lang=zh` but allow-after/forbid-before if `lang=de`. Most of UAX-14 is "should" level as well, so it allows for this kind of tailoring.

With that said, the remaining question is whether this should be left for individual UAs to figure out, or if it should be specified somewhere. The general feeling in the CSS WG has been that specifying this sort of thing is just too big a scope, involves too much original research as soon as we step off the major languages (and even there, it might need non-trivial work to figure out what's desired), and that specifying this kind of thing in css-text is just not practical.
