Yes, you'll need to set direction at the block/paragraph-level to
properly 
initialize the Unicode BiDi rule (and above paragraph if you have lists
or 
other indention). It's probably fine to allow setting dir anyplace you
set 
lang (which would include on span/inlines).

Is the NewsML-2 spec available? I reviewed several of the earlier
drafts.
