To clarify what Martin's talking about, the effect of being a block, bidi-wise,
is similar to that of being an embedding: the surrounding contents do not
affect resolution within the element, and the 'direction' of the element
determines the direction at its boundaries. (It has nothing to do with
"inheriting embeddings" or anything like that.) Furthermore, any text
reordering is confined within the boundaries of the element, which is an
important similarity to the behavior of blocks.

Both with isolation and with embedding, not only are the contents of the
element isolated from the surrounding content, but, as with a block element,
the contents of the element do not affect bidi resolution of the surrounding

The difference between isolation and embedding is the effect of the element
itself on the surrounding contents. For isolation, it's treated as
neutral--effectively invisible. For embedding, it's treated as a strong
character in the direction of the embedding.
