I'm not convinced that what you're describing is the ideal behavior from a UI
perspective; imo the UI should be based on, if not the local of the browser, at
least the surrounding context of the UI element, not its content. So using
either the directionality of the browser chrome or using the directionality of
the input element's parent.

That said, I have no problem with HTML defining empty dir=auto elements (that
contain not even white space) to resolve to the directionality of their parent.
