It is already in the Text level 3 spec (see last sentence of the quote below):

The start and end edges of a line box are determined by the inline base
direction of the line box. In most cases, this is given by its containing
block's computed ‘direction’. However if its containing block has
‘unicode-bidi: plaintext’ [CSS3-WRITING-MODES], the inline base direction the
line box must be determined by the base direction of the bidi paragraph to
which it belongs: that is, the bidi paragraph for which the line box holds
content. An empty line box (i.e. one that contains no atomic inlines or
characters other than the line-breaking character, if any), takes its inline
base direction from the preceding line box (if any), or, if this is the first
line box in the containing block, then from the ‘direction’ property of the
containing block.
