I should point out that this point is arguable. Also, the misordering done by
treating <br> as it should is fixable by placing an RLM/LRM (depending on the
desired paragraph direction) before and after the <br>, whereas the misordering
as a result of treating <br> as a paragraph break is not fixable at all.
