3.2.6 Requirements relating to bidirectional-algorithm formatting characters
http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/content-models.html#requirements-relating-to-bidirectional-algorithm-formatting-characters

There is one sentence that reads:

--
However, the use of these characters is restricted so that any embedding or overrides generated by these characters do not start and end with different parent elements, and so that all such embeddings and overrides are explicitly terminated by a U+202C POP DIRECTIONAL FORMATTING character.
--

Shouldn't there be an explicit statement such as "any end tag for a run of phrasing content must be treated as if a U+202C had been inserted at that point"
