The usual solution for special cases requiring the standard linebreaking to be
overwritten is to add a zero width breaking or non breaking (depending on what
you want to achieve) joiner character to the input stream. Typically as part of
the XSL transformation step if you have one.

While it is desirable to make line breaking behaviour more flexible your
approach of exposing setters on static variables making them modifiable at
runtime is non thread safe and also does not allow linebreaking customization
on a per fop invocation basis as obviously these tables are shared across all
fop instances.

A more generic approach possibly using interfaces, factories and configurable
line breaking providers may be more appropriate. However, as pointed out above
this may be an overkill in your case as, depending on your FOP production
pipeline, injecting non breaking word joiner (U+2060) into your currency
amounts could be a simple solution not requiring any FOP code changes.
