Should be there now, there was some temporary glitch in the commit process. For
future reference, the draft at http://whatwg.org/c has all the text discussed
here also.

Some other spec might define it, so we can't really do that without risking
specs contradicting each other. It doesn't allow UAs to do anything they want,
since in the absence of some other spec, the bidi spec is already authoritative
and doesn't allow UAs to make up their own rules.
