What do well designed word processors do for WYSIWYG BIDI copy/paste? 
Aren't there useful precedents, and wouldn't users on particular 
platforms prefer consistent conventions?  Indeed, I would think that, in 
the common case, IRIs would tend to be of modest length, and thus easier 
to handle than more general runs of bidi in word processors.
