It is often useful to specify a "base" directionality for an entire document or block of elements rather than having to repeat it over-and-over on each affected element. I can agree that it might not make sense on every element and perhaps we should look at which structural elements in P&C make sense as a place to set a base directionality or directionality override.

In which elements the use of <span> is expected should now be clear in
the spec [1]:

Context in which this element is used:
  As a child of the name, author, license, and/or description element.
