The behavior you get with truncate-lines set to nil, word-wrap set to
nil, and visual-line-mode set to t is what I think he's looking for
with respect to Chinese characters.

What he's really asking for is for Chinese characters to not "stick
together" like English (etc.) characters do when word-wrap is on.
That would take me by surprise if I had embedded a few Chinese
characters into some English text I was writing and Emacs broke the
line between them, because I'm not used to seeing words that are
"breakable" but not normally separated by a space.  I don't know what
the best way would be to handle that   I'm sure there are different
rules for different languages that I don't even know about, and all
word-wrap does not is look for the last tab or space.
