Since it is requested so often, perhaps asking the WG to consider a solution is appropriate?
The most often requested place is a table cell, so perhaps something like a hint to the processor, break-at="20" meaning if needed, presume a soft-hyphen at character position 20 within any word?
Any other suggestions anyone?
