Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: 

Well as much as I want to change this, realistically it seems that
compatibility with IE quirks mode for <br> is going to be more important than
compatibility with its standards mode, and I doubt Microsoft are willing to
change their quirks mode.

So I guess this gets left as is, unless any of the browsers are willing to
actually change the spec to the more sensible model and compatibility be
damned. In particular, if WebKit is willing to change to match what the spec
used to say (that BR doesn't reset the bidi paragraph level) then that would be
a compelling argument to change the spec here.
