But in thinking about it more, I think it should be more like what you are saying, where it is basically each continuous section of the line box that transforms. That is, the lengths of linebox that each contain as much of the inline element as is on that line, as it is visually laid out, even if some of it is bidi.

I'm not sure I follow.  Say the logical markup is:

   This is <span>some HEBREW</span> TEXT

where "HEBREW TEXT" are RTL chars.  The visual layout will be:

   This is some TXET WERBEH

If the <span> is transformed (say a rotate by 90 degrees), what do you 
expect to happen?
