(...) One discussion point that I seem to recall touched on a context in which the
local language was right-to-left but numbers appearing within the text
using Hindu-Arabic numerals (0-9) were left-to-right.

This is always the case in all RTL languages, digits order in numbers notation is universally LTR (leftmost digit yields the biggest power of ten)

IRIs should be as universal as numbers.
