Why is this needed? I.e. What problem does it solve? (keeping in mind I don't
know much about bidi).

Firefox used to have various preferences which controlled how rtl text should
be submitted, but they were largely unused by users and over time stopped
working as originally intended. Eventually they were completely removed since
it was unclear if they were used at all. So far no one has complained about
their removal so it does indeed seem like they were unused. However these prefs
were very different from what is proposed here, so it might be that the
suggested feature is much more useful.

Should the submitted value be affected by CSS rules that affect the direction
of the control?

What happens if the control itself has dir=ltr but only contains rtl text? What
if it contains both rtl and ltr text?
