    It wouldn't allow line breaks, but it would indicate an unwanted word
    boundary, no? (I don't have access to UTR14 at the moment, but the text
    Ken quoted

      "...inserting a word joiner between two characters has no
      effect on their ligating and cursive joining behavior. The
      word joiner should be ignored in contexts other than word
      or line breaking."

    wouldn't seem to make sense if WJ did not indicate a word boundary.)
