[css-ruby] Forcing Breaking "very long ruby" line?

Dear CSS people,

Recently, I've come up with several interesting Ruby use cases that
might need to be supported with Current CSS Ruby Level 1 [1]

These cases are "Very long ruby lines", that have been rarely seen in
the past, but it has recently become more and more popular
(especially among Japanese novels for young ages.)

I attach two sample pictures.

Current CSS Ruby spec [1] do not consider forced line breaking on such
case.  When ruby segment with too long ruby (or base) text appeared,
they may be overhang to the display box, thus it may cause the loss of
textual information to people who read the text.

To cope with such ruby use, we might need to consider the "forced line
breaking" rule for too long ruby segment, though JLREQ[2] clearly
prohibits line breaking (Section 3.3.1 Usage of Ruby).
