My first response was actually the response for I18N-ISSUE-314, which fantasai also responded. Re-replying for the original issue:

>  I think that, for the sake of interoperability, the CSS spec should require the use of UAX14 as a default for line breaking behaviour. It should also state that the rules in UAX14 may need tailoring for certain scripts, and that the properties specified in this section assist the user in controlling line breaking behaviour.


That makes sense, though, we canít do that today for web-compatibility. Weíll keep considering this in future.
