Good points regarding lang="" and dir=""; I won't change their defaults.

Defaulting to dir=auto on the new element seems reasonable.

I think <ubi> is just as confusing as <bdi>, the advantage of the latter is in
fact the similarity with <bdo>  they'd appear together on alphabetical lists,
they'd have an obvious relationship, and people looking for one but remembering
the other could thus likely find what they wanted more easily.

I think an element makes more sense than an attribute here, for the same reason
<bdo> is an element. There's never a reason to make this paragraph-level,
right? (Paragraphs are always isolated?) Generally we only add global
attributes when you'd use the attribute on all kinds of elements, not just
phrasing content.
