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/#lists
[http://www.w3.org/International/docs/html-bidi-requirements/#lists]
. Here is the proposal made there:

The HTML specification should state that, by default, the markers of all
"list-style-position:outside" items should disregard the list item element's
computed direction, using the list element's computed direction instead for the
marker's display and positioning.

CSS will provide means to control this. If the CSS default in this respect must
differ, the default stylesheet should achieve the default behavior specified
above.

Furthermore, the list marker text will be directionally isolated from the list
item text, appearing in its own UBA paragraph.
