Yes and yes.
Ellipsis are already supported on Row Templates, and we had it planned
for 2.3, but it's currently unclear if it will happen. We also have a
bug for it: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=429894
You can certainly add browser-native CSS (bypassing the RAP theming) to
enable this for ALL divs. To do so you must add the CSS in a style tag
to the applications HEAD_HTML:
(This only has an example for BODY_HTML, but HEAD_HTML is the same).
