[css-text] text-transform: capitalize Word Boundaries too strict

I am using text-transform: capitalize; and I'm finding that it treats
punctuation within a word as a word boundary. For example:

word(s) gets transformed into Word(S)
afortunado/a gets transformed into Afortunado/A

In these cases, the S and the A should not be capitalized. In the first
case, the S is there to indicate that the word may be plural. In the second
case, the word is Spanish and the A is there because the adjective could be
for a male or female reader.

Can the word boundary rules get adjusted to deal with these cases?
