Sorry, but I am unsure how to contact you on IRC.

The diff looks great! However, I think that an example clarifying the situation
with option would be particularly in order, since the situation there is
confused by the fact that the option's text is displayed as "the value" of the
select after it has been chosen, and the select's dir can go the other way.
Firefox and Chrome make that mistake. Thus, I would suggest adding something
like the following immediately after the text added by the diff:

'For example, the "HTML!" in "<div dir=rtl>...<select><option
dir=ltr>HTML!</option></select>...</div>" should be shown correctly in LTR (not
garbled as "!HTML" in RTL) both before and after being selected.'
