Re: I18N-ISSUE-123: Insertion of U+202C [HTML5-prep]

 I suggest to add the following text: 

Bidirectional-algorithm formatting character ranges must be treated as if 
including at their end point as many U+202C (PDF) characters as necessary 
to close any open embeddings and overrides.

3.2.6 Requirements relating to bidirectional-algorithm formatting 

There is one sentence that reads:

However, the use of these characters is restricted so that any embedding 
or overrides generated by these characters do not start and end with 
different parent elements, and so that all such embeddings and overrides 
are explicitly terminated by a U+202C POP DIRECTIONAL FORMATTING 

Shouldn't there be an explicit statement such as "any end tag for a run of 
phrasing content must be treated as if a U+202C had been inserted at that
