--- Comment #25 from Ian 'Hixie' Hickson <ian@hixie.ch> 2010-11-05 07:25:44 UTC ---
Could browser vendors comment on whether they would be interested in changing
behaviour here?

The question specifically is on whether when the user changes a text field from
ltr to rtl (or vice versa), the user agent should mutate the DOM to set a
dir="" attribute on the <input> or <textarea> element to the selected
direction.
