Reopening the bug for two reasons:

1. Besides asking for titledir and altdir, the bug asks for the spec to
explicitly say that by default, the title and alt values are displayed in the
element's computed direction. This has not been addressed before rejecting the
bug. As explained in the full proposal, although currently all major browsers
seem to do this, it has not always been the case. It is not currently obvious
from the spec and that should be changed.

2. There are cases when the title or alt needs to have one direction, while the
element needs another. Here is an example for title, from the FPWD
(http://www.w3.org/TR/html-bidi/#title-and-alt), that accidentally got left out
of the editor's draft:

An RTL web page displays an LTR address (e.g. for a location in Europe), with a
tooltip on the address element saying "ADDRESS" in the page's language. The
tooltip thus needs to be RTL (i.e. titledir=rtl) while the element needs to be
LTR (dir=ltr).

For such cases, we want titledir and altdir.
