In typography, orphans are lone words at the end of a line. However, in CSS, the orphans property controls the minimum number of lines in a block container that must be left at the bottom of a page, not the minimum number of words at the end of a line. Is there anything planned for typographic orphans? If not, why? 

This must have been discussed before, but can't seem to find it, sorry. Also, happy new year to everybody!
