Comment 20 is very helpful, thanks. That's what bugs should be. :-)

Based on this, I agree that dir=auto is a good solution.

Is CSS is going to be changed so that instead of dir=rtl/dir=ltr/dir=auto
mapping straight to direction:ltr/direction:rtl/direction:auto we have them map
as follows:

   :ltr { direction: ltr; }
   :rtl { direction: rtl; }

...with dir=rtl, =ltr, and =auto setting some logical flag in the markup? If
so, I can spec the HTML side of that.
