It certainly is a misunderstanding. A kid in Egypt or Israel who has not yet learnt a second language should be able to use the internet in his own language and script, i.e. exclusively RTL.

It's a misunderstanding. I'm asking for overall LTR directionality i.e. labels, fragments ordered LTR. I'm not asking for using exclusively LTR scripts. If it's still not clear, please ask, I'll explain further.
