This is correct, and is the core of what is being suggested.

However, given that the spec has up to now defined <br> as bidi whitespace, it
would seem that a line break with bidi whitespace semantics is apparently
useful enough to warrant some way of getting it. I do not feel comfortable
getting rid of it completely, without providing some opt-in way of getting it.
