HTML named entity issue [I18N-ACTION-1244]



Pursuant to my action item [1] to find and possibly re-open the issue about
named entities for isolating bidi controls, I traced the issue and found the
relevant part of the conversation roughly here:


The WHATWG HTML group decided to add *no* new named entities ever and the
reason is that it would break existing HTML processors (not just browsers).
I did not re-open 5121. I think we should discuss whether we should attempt
to re-raise this.

Internationalization is not a feature.

It is an architecture.
