Is this bidi information only needed some of the time? Or does effectively all
form submission need this information to correctly process submitted text?

If it's always needed, it seems weird that an opt-in through a separate
attribute is needed. It'd be great to find a solution which didn't require
that.

Like, should we always include information if the user has specifically
modified the bidi direction? For example by adding a control character in the
beginning of the value or some such? (As i understand it there are unicode
characters that modify the text direction?)
