It didn't come into existence, but I've found a proposed HTML markup
element HYPH that would almost have done the job at
http://www.nada.kth.se/i18n/html/hyph.html .  The one problem is the
old one of displaying a left matra in isolation.  Of course, if one
has total font control, the PUA could have come to the rescue if HYPH
had been adopted and implemented.
