Some more comments about "5.8 Unicode BIDI Processing" [1]:

1. The example in the last note uses "ID" attribute, instead of "id".
2. 6-th paragraph mentions "override" instead of "bidi-override" as a value of 
the "unicode-bidi" property.
3. The algorithm, described in "5.8 Unicode BIDI Processing" doesn't say how 
inline formatting objects like fo:external-graphics or fo:leader should be 
treated with respect to BIDI processing. I think it should be explicitly 
stated, that according to BIDI algorithm they should be treated as OBJECT 
"For the purpose of the bidirectional algorithm, inline objects (such as 
graphics) are treated as if they are an OBJECT REPLACEMENT CHARACTER (U+FFFC)."[2]
