        That’s also all what I’ve initially requested: to be able to
        mark portions of text as exempt from word wrap.  (Or, better
        still, – to force truncation for such lines.)

        With lines being wrapped /past/ the window’s own borders, right?
        So, you’d see exactly the picture Stefan has provided earlier:

 SM> +---------+
 SM>  here is t|he example|
 SM>  wrapped t|ext       |
 SM>           ^          |
 SM>     window border    |
 SM>                      |
 SM>                      ^
 SM>                 wrap-column

        Or perhaps even:

      |← window borders →|
    He|e is the more or l|ss
    th| same example text| ↖
      |                  |  wrap-column

        Such display is clearly possible with Firefox, while the Emacs
        display engine so far doesn’t support it.

        It isn’t the behavior I observe, – when I scroll a Emacs window
        horizontally, all the lines that were wrapped are magically
