@kojiishi I agree that multi-line ellipsis would be using the CBA, as it is effectively a matter of fragmentation, and that's what you would get if you were to break the line / fragment.

However, here we're talking about single line ellipsisis, which is a graphical thing that can be uncovered by scrolling, and explicitly does not affect layout.

Indeed, that's what we consider, since:
1) you need to prevent the line from wrapping to get the effect anyway
2) when you scroll, you should reveal the hidden part

That's certainly true of me as well, although my understanding is that the spec as it is written did have the input of bidi-native people (and got horizontal review from i18n)
