Why not? And anyway, it already does so when it sets the input/textarea's
value/content.

It comes up all the time, when the user sets the control's direction via the UI
provided by the user agent, which sets the control's dir attribute (see bug
10821). All we are saying is that when the control gets re-populated with a
value the user provided in the past, it should be re-populated with the dir
that the user explicitly assigned to that value, if any.
