    Then what about ZERO WIDTH SPACE, which, according to TUS3, p. 238,
    "can grow to have a visible width when justified"? And it has the
    NamesList comment:
            * nominally zero width, but may expand in justification

    (But U+0082, BREAK PERMITTED HERE, which otherwise is very similar
    to ZWSP according to 6429, does apparently not allow such stretching...)
