I would specify no defaults here - in general we should only have 
defaults if we are 100% sure about the purpose of the markup in HTML5. 
That would also resolve the concern you expressed below.

I would also specify no defaults for Directionality, since this is in 
flux for HTML5 (like Ruby).

For preserve space we say in the ITS2 draft

"The Preserve Space data category does not apply to HTML documents in 
HTML syntax."

That raises some questions:

- do the mappings
http://www.w3.org/International/multilingualweb/lt/wiki/HTML5_Defaults
only apply to HTML5 content in HTML5 syntax?
- what do we say to people who want to apply the mappings for HTML4 / 
3.2 / XHTML?

Agree.

Best,
