The CSS rules can't really be normative, since the browser doesn't have to
implement CSS at all, and even if it does, it doesn't really technically have
to implement unicode-bidi to do the bidi stuff, it could just hard-code that
behaviour.  If a browser _does_ implement CSS and unicode-bidi, then it is
already required to put in the UA style sheet the rules in the spec, because if
it doesn't then it will violate the other parts of the spec that says how these
bidi features work, as far as I can tell.
