Right. The question is whether Korean should have the same allowances
as Chinese and Japanese. Notice there are special line breaks that are
allowed *only* when the language is *known* to be Chinese or Japanese.
We could allow them also if the language is known to be Korean. However,
KLREQ does not seem to allow these breaks, so we did not allow these
special breaks for Korean.

In general, we need closer review of line-breaking for Korean, since we
have received very few comments on Korean line-breaking rules.
