Yeah, that's fair enough.

Ok, I will change the spec as follows:
 - make dir="" be defined as setting a logical direction
 - change the style sheet to use :ltr / :rtl instead of selecting on [dir]
 - add an "auto" value to "dir" that applies UAX #9 P2/P3 to the element's text
(skipping <script>, <style>, and certain other elements).
 - make dir=""'s default value element-specific
 - change <bdi> to default to "auto", the root <html> element to "ltr", and
have all other elements inherit the "computed" direction.
 - add an example to the dir="" section of an IM conversation where dir="auto"
would help (I'll need help with this since I don't speak any RTL languages).
 - add :rtl/:ltr to the selector mapping section
