 From the perspective of the CSS specifications, the <br> element is
just another inline element. If it wants special behavior, that has
to be defined in HTML. I would suggest to disallow ubi on <br> if
that seems to be necessary, else add

   br[ubi] { unicode-bidi: normal; }

to the default style sheet for HTML5.
