Regarding the recent discussion of space and line break characteristics, I recall that Karen was engaged in a very protracted discussion with the editors on aspects of these questions. At one stage they specified a new property "usage-context-of-suppress-at-line-break" to resolve issues Karen had raised.

I have looked for information about this at the W3C, but so far have only recovered the note in

What would be more useful is to trace the complete thread of the discussion, including the putative rescinding of this property. If Karen is listening, she may be able to offer some guidance. I remembered this because I added usage-context-of-suppress-at-line-break to, and noted that I would have to remove it after I read the update from the editors.
