Hm, the text looks bad, but it’s a little hard to re-write as we already say:
| CSS does not fully define where soft wrap opportunities occur,
| however some controls are provided to distinguish common variations.

I tried this text:
| Soft wrap opportunities are as defined above.
which links to where we refer to UAX14.

Does this look ok?
