 From my perspective at the State Library of Victoria, Australia. 
bidirectionality is more an issue for the ocnent management system being 
used. I try not obly draw a distinction between Markup vs CSS

But also CMS/Framework vs textual content. Most of our textual content 
is databased, and some of it needs to be resued in differnet ways. 
Abstracting bidi issues from the data (where practicable) is useful.
