No :(

This problem cannot be resolved quickly. It requires an adjustment to 
the Knuth algorithm used for generating Break Possibilities. Simon P has 
a proposal to change the Knuth algorithm that addresses this problem, 
but it will take some time to implement.

 From my perspective (as a User), this problem is not high on the list 
of  priorities. Mainly because my stylesheets don't allow the user to 
preserve whitespace in incoming data. This is considering poor 
formatting. Instead the XML should be restructed to allow formatting 
attributes to be applied to text to yield the desired result.
