Maybe you could set the display text property on each line (starting
just before the right margin), to emulate truncate-lines.

Nope, text from the 'display' property text still wraps. Also, you
can't navigate through it with the point. :(

I meant, if you want the buffer text truncated at column N, set the display
property at column N - 1 through the rest of the line to a single character
(e.g. U+2026 HORIZONTAL ELLIPSIS or U+22EF MIDLINE HORIZONTAL ELLIPSIS) to
indicate truncation.
