This means that if/when we standardise word breaking, we will need to be clear which meaning is intended. My personal opinion would be to follow the ICU naming to reduce user & implementer confusion.

I'm wondering whether algorithms requiring more than a Unicode character
properties database should be out-of-scope for any near-future C++ endeavor.
This includes locale-specific tailoring and also algorithms based on language

Once near-future is past, I think I'd like to see a paper
comparing the ICU interfaces with hypothetical ergonomic
C++ ones. Maybe the returns of a C++ interface are diminishing
rapidly here.
