Strunk and White's _Elements of Style_ is another key authority on
English-language writing style. It defines exactly the rules I expected:
I suspect that this is about as authoritative as we will find.
Otherwiser, it would be matter of analyzing standard practice to
document the patterns that are used. That analysis would confirm the
rules stated at the above URL.
In thinking about it, I think that the Annex 14 rules are stated in such
a way that the rules are appropriate for languages that do not use space
to determine line breaks without explicitly disallowing Western-style
line breaking behavior.
