Seems like that could be accomplished simply by removing this line:

"A br element does not separate paragraphs for the purposes of the Unicode
bidirectional algorithm. [BIDI]"

That's arguably a separate request from a new mechanism that breaks the line
without acting as a paragraph break. For the new mechanism, is &#x2028; a
sufficient solution? While not as memorable as <br>, it nonetheless seems less
complicated than the bidibreak proposal.
