Well, there are two separate issues here. One is that the UBA mangles AN
phone numbers pretty badly. This has no direct impact on the HTML/CSS
proposal. I have no problem sending that in, but would prefer to delay until
after the HTML5 bug submissions are done.

The other is to get bidi@unicode.org feedback on the modified first-strong
estimation algorithm I am proposing, in the context of the dir=auto feature
(not as a proposal to modify the UBA).

However, given that fantasai and Mati and Amit have already expressed
reservations about my proposal, and that no one has seconded it, I now
wonder whether it's  worth troubling them over it.
