The problem with the former is that FixAndPrintObject sees "Epiphany"
as a WORD, while for the latter it sees an ACAT (&-concatenated
paragraph).  So it doesn't apply the break style in the former case.

This could be fixed by promoting WORD to ACAT when @Break is applied
to a single word paragraph.  But since I'm not very familiar with that
part of Lout code and don't have much time now, I can't fix it.
Perhaps Jeff will fix this for the forthcoming 3.13.

For now tack on an empty object as a workaround, as you do in the
latter example, only don't put a space, i.e.:  Epiphany{}
