Good points.

The proposed solution, as I understand it:
- new bdi element, gets unicode-bidi:isolate in default stylesheet, otherwise
same as span.
- bdi element has dir=auto by default (pending the final outcome of bug 10808)
- output element gets unicode-bidi:isolate in default stylesheet.

If so, looks good to me.
