They did get reviewed, and I checked in some minor changes before the pull
etc. However, there was one important thing that I was meaning to do, but
hadn't yet done, and which really does need to be done. The test at
https://github.com/w3c/html-testsuite/blob/master/html/semantics/text-level-semantics/the-bdi-element/bdi-neutral-br.html
(and
its ref file) needs to be deleted. After it was written and reviewed, there
was a change in the CSS spec for unicode-bidi:isolate (which is the actual
implementation of the bdi element) that made a bidi paragraph break within
it terminate the bidi paragraph surrounding it. The test, on the other
hand, checks that just the opposite is true. I filed
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=20085 on the HTML spec
(which got cloned to https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=20126),
asking to change the spec on the bdi element so it is consistent with
unicode-bidi:isolate, but Hixie has not yet dealt with these. The bottom
line is that the test I mentioned above currently expects results that are
contrary to what the spec should say. Since it would be just as bad to
change it to require results contrary to what the spec currently says, I
think it would be best to simply drop it for now.

What is the significance of the replication to there (or lack of it)?
