I think it boils down to more than that, but let me answer you. LRE, RLE, LRO,
RLO and PDF are evil in HTML for many reasons, but one of them is that it is
impossible to give a reasonable definition of how they should interact with
direction specified by mark-up, especially given that the PDF can come in a
different element than the opening character, or not at all, without making it
an invalid HTML document.
