Why would it be garbled? dir=rtl isn't an override, just an embedding. The most
it would do is change the positioning of punctuation (easily fixed with
explicit embedding information) or the alignment.

I guess I don't mind if we make it dir=auto, but I really find this allergy to
Unicode bidi formatting characters to be getting out of control. This is an
extreme edge case, we shouldn't add an attribute for it.
