I don't know :( I think we should remove the at risk, and just run
with it. It's still going to be optional, but at least it provides a
solution for those that need it.

The other way forward is that we remove ITS, make a new spec that
defines our own @dir and <span> elements in the widget namespace. I've
put that idea to the group before and didn't get a very positive
response. My only personal gripe with ITS is that it requires another
namespace. That's a pain for both developers and implementers. But, I
can live with it.
