    Yep. But there's no reason the behavior specified in UAX14 for mandatory
    breaks (CR, LF, NEL, etc) shouldn't be required. For CSS3 Text, the
    behavior specified for BK, CR, LF, CM, NL classes can, I think, be safely
    required in all cases. The behavior for WJ, ZW, and GL should be required
    in normal text wrapping. I don't think we care about SG either way.

    References to any other parts of UAX14 should be informative only.

    (The required behavior of SP is imho, not clearly defined. I don't want to
    import normative text that may or may not contradict the CSS spec itself.)
