My understanding is that, in implementations, the appropriate unicode
directionality markers would be inserted where the its elements and
attributes appear.

This is here because I18N community requested it, we added it, it's
optional and has been marked as a "feature-at-risk" (as described and
allowed in the process document). If no one implements it, then we
will remove it.
