I've clarified that the children of mlabeledtr (after the first)
are treated identically to the children of mtr.

I've also split out a paragraph in the bidi section to make clear
from the outset what leading and trailing mean, and that otherwise,
left means left, etc.

In trying to be explicit without being repetitive, it became clear
that the menclose cases updiagonalstrike and downdiagonalstrike could
suggest a dependence on directionality.  Discussions within the group
decided that they should not have such dependence and so I have added
clarifying text there, as well.
