[Ruby and directionality issues] progress report

Hi all,

FYI, the i18n WG discussed these yesterday


the outcome for directionality was: Norbert and Richard will propose 
text for the section so that is says the right thing

The expectation is that if there are changes in the values defined for 
directionality, the implementers would just "transport" these values in 
their implementations, e.g. to XLIFF. Yves and Philip, let me know if 
that is fine by you.

This would close issue-209, issue-214 and issue-241.

For ruby, we need to continue the discussion what to do.

It was also discussed whether ITS would have an update to accomodate the 
to be expected changes for ruby and directionality in HTML5 or its 
successor, e.g. ITS 2.1. Let me know if you have any thoughts on this.
