5. Line Breaking and Word Boundaries
http://www.w3.org/TR/2013/WD-css-text-3-20131010/#line-breaking

"CSS does not fully define where soft wrap opportunities occur, however some controls are provided to distinguish common variations"

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.

Text in the spec such as the definition of word-break: normal, which says "Words break according to their usual rules", would then provide a little more guidance to the implementor.
