While working on ASCII-only tests for the host parser Domenic and I

It seems Bidi, ContextJ, and ContextO could all be options that you
either enable or disable. As Alex mentioned in
https://github.com/whatwg/url/issues/110 it seems that nobody enables
ContextO at this point, but the others are checked.

Unfortunately I haven't gotten around to testing the algorithms more
thoroughly yet, but I hope to get to that soon. Domenic and I have a
plan for a host parsing test framework that will help us test ToASCII.
We might be able to repurpose it to stress ToUnicode as well come to
think of it, since URL's origin getter uses that (but that's always
after ToASCII has already been applied, there's no way to use
ToUnicode directly in browsers).
