I agree that’s confusing. I edited the section. This paragraph ended up as:

  <p>When inserting an LRM or RLM character, the consumer still depends on
  applying a first-strong heuristic to get the proper direction;
  consumers that don't apply first-strong can get the direction
wrong.</p>

What do you think?

In 4.4 "Augmenting first-strong by inserting RLM markers", we find "As a variant of the first-strong heuristic approach, the consumer would still need to also use first-strong heuristics to apply the correct directionality to the string".
I don't understand this. The first-strong heuristic is also its own variant?
