[alreq] Line breaking rules (#237)

xfq has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/alreq:

== Line breaking rules ==
Reading the Chinese national standard GB/T 32411-2015 *Information technology for the Uyghur, Kazagh, and Kirghiz editor common software*, I noticed the following text:

> No line should begin with period, comma, question mark, exclamation mark, exclamatory question mark, colon, dash, closing single quotation mark, closing double quotation mark, closing parenthesis, and closing book title mark.

> No line should end with opening single quotation mark, opening double quotation mark, opening parenthesis, and opening book title marks.

I wonder if if Arabic/Persian has something similar. If so, I think we should document them (perhaps in [ยง 4.1 Line breaking](https://w3c.github.io/alreq/#h_line_breaking), see similar sections in [clreq](https://www.w3.org/TR/clreq/#prohibition_rules_for_line_start_end) and [jlreq](https://www.w3.org/TR/jlreq/#characters_not_starting_a_line)).


By the way, should we document requirements in other languages using the Arabic script? For example, Arabic-derived Uyghur/Uighur requires marking of all vowels and uses hyphenation, which is different from Arabic and Persian.
