I think this is much more understandable. 

 

In fact, this is an illustration of what appears above "Note that, if the producer is relying on the consumer using first-strong character detection to establish the contextual base direction of a string, the consumer needs to be aware that it should also use that approach."

But I have no problem with nails being driven all the way in J

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?
