"1.2. What is XHTML Modularization?" of "Modularization of XHTML" says [1]:

    XHTML Modularization is a decomposition of XHTML 1.0, and by reference
    HTML 4, into a collection of abstract modules that provide specific
    types of functionality.

BIDI is a specific type of functionality, that's why it's in a separate
module.  Trying to mix it with other i18n features is a wrong direction.
