Although remember that there is http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-text/#text-wrap0 which would affect how overflow-wrap is being used.

I feel 'word-wrap' works nicely but agree with the issue with renaming widely deployed features.

> Why is word-wrap renamed to overflow-wrap? The spec says UAs may support word-wrap also. This seems very silly. Please stick to word-wrap which is implemented in multiple browsers for years and is used by Web content. Renaming widely deployed features should not be done, even if the name is suboptimal.
