The scenario where a hyphen is indiscriminately considered a valid
break point, as mentioned in a previous post in this thread.

But since we are talking about CJK here, I *think* I have asked this
same question before too, but maybe I should ask again: Suppose we
have the following example sentence:


and we want the following (where each · denotes a possible break point):


I expect keep-all to be able to accomplish this, but for some reason I
remember being told that this is not in fact the case. The explanation
in http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-text/ seems to neither confirm nor
deny this. Is clarification needed for keep-all, or have I missed
something obvious?

In any case, if keep-all is meant to *only* apply to CJK text this
needs to be clarified.
