There is a normative file, auxiliary/WordBreakProperty.txt in the
Unicode Character Database.

The Word_Break property should have nothing to do with rendering, and I
would not expect the rendering engines to pay any attention to them.
Is this a problem for gender-sensitive shaping?

The Word_Break property is for splitting text into word, such as
advancing through text word-by-word and spell-checking. I get the
impression that the Mongolian script is one where there is great need
of a spell-checker, because with a normal font one can't check what one
wrote.
