Comment:This is a part of the proposals made by the "Additional Requirements
for Bidi in HTML" W3C First Public Working Draft. For a full description of the
use cases, please see 
http://www.w3.org/International/docs/html-bidi-requirements/#remember-input-dir
[http://www.w3.org/International/docs/html-bidi-requirements/#remember-input-dir]
. Here is the proposal made there:

The HTML specification should state that whenever a user agent stores a
user-provided <input> or <textarea> text value for later use (such as
auto-completion), it should also store the nominal direction value the element
had when displaying this value. This may be the original direction of the
element, or may have been set by the user for that value via the user agent's
UI, or may have been set for that value by page scripts. If the user agent
later recalls and displays this value, e.g. in an auto-completion dropdown, it
should be displayed in its stored direction. If the value is assigned to an
element, the element's dir value should be set to its stored direction.
