WG Reviewed: Yes

The example should use upper case for RTL and lower case 
for Latin.

Rationale: this is the convention used in Unicode documents like 
UAX#9. This is also the convention used in the example in section 2.3.
In the same example, the pseudo-bidi words seem meaningless. I suggest to 
use English words written backwards, like "SDROW EMOS ERA EREH".
