unicode-bidi takes 5 different values and maybe will take more in the future.
Currently, I believe two of those are exposed via HTML - the dir="" attribute
on most elements sets "unicode-bidi: embed" (in addition to setting
"direction") and the dir="" attribute on the <bdo>element sets "unicode-bidi:
override" (again in addition to setting "direction"). Perhaps instead of adding
another boolean attribute for yet another value, it would make more sense to
add a bidi="" attribute that can express any of the unicode-bidi values. That
would be more future proof, as we won't have to proliferate attributes if it
turns out more of these are important to expose to markup.
