    There was a long discussion on limiting <br> for use in table *only*, after that 
    was written. More discussion ensued and <br> was outlawed in the entire 
    document. And now we are here.
    
The reason it wound up being supported at all in that limited scope was because I did an analysis of tons of XMLv2 documents that used a line break to see 1) how and why it had been used before, and 2) where there was no other mechanism available via other language constructs. The biggest use I found that had no alternative was in tables. Unfortunately, I was swamped with other things when this topic came up in Oct 2018.
