Parallel to soft hyphen, a hyphen that is just inserted if the word was 
broken, it would be practical to have some way to tell browser: if you 
need to break the line, try here first. This would be really usefull for 
poems, music lines, adresses,…

And it would be really easy to implement: there is no visual 
representation needed and if the right code-point is choosen, it would 
be downward-compatible to all systems not knowing of the new character.

Also, the implementation in browers would be very easy to acomplish.

Please support this proposal,
