[css3-text] Japanese justification and puncutuation-trim:allow-end

Although it's not normative, current specification for text-justify[1] contains an example algorithm from JIS X-4051. During an informal conversation in Japan, we noticed that the justification algorithm mentioned in JIS X-4051 is a little different from the one in JLREQ[2].

By comparing the two, I think we should change the example to refer JLREQ rather than JIS X-4051, one because English translation exists, and another because it looks slightly superior to me.

If a browser follows JLREQ rules, it'd make puncutuation-trim:allow-end almost unnecessary because its behavior is included in the rule b of 3.8.3 Procedures for Inter-Character Space Reduction[3]. But since it's a non-normative reference, we should leave the property and the value as is with a note added and see if we can get any other feedbacks.

Any feedbacks on this would be appreciated.
