After I wrote the reply, I checked and found out that (contrary to what I 
remembered) UAX#14 does appear to allow such breaks. However, that is an 
oversight, not a design decision, and I've started steps to fix that.

I will propose at the next UTC that this gets fixed by adding a rule 19b

         IS x AL

and changing the appropriate cell from _ to % in the pair table.

If there are other errata for the report, I would be interested in finding 
out about them.
