As far as I can tell, we already require the behaviours that the CSS properties
imply, e.g.:

"If the element's dir attribute is in the rtl state, then for the purposes of
the bidirectional algorithm, the user agent must act as if there was a U+202D
LEFT-TO-RIGHT OVERRIDE character at the start of the element, and a U+202C POP
DIRECTIONAL FORMATTING at the end of the element."
"If the element's dir attribute is in the ltr, then for the purposes of the
bidirectional algorithm, the user agent must act as if there was a U+202E
RIGHT-TO-LEFT OVERRIDE character at the start of the element, and a U+202C POP
DIRECTIONAL FORMATTING at the end of the element."
"A br element should separate paragraphs for the purposes of the Unicode
bidirectional algorithm."
"A newline in a textarea element, and in its raw value, should separate
paragraphs for the purposes of the Unicode bidirectional algorithm."

...etc.

Isn't that sufficient?
