For what it's worth, Gecko has had "div { unicode-bidi: embed; }" in the 
UA stylesheet for about a year now in nightlies and for close to half a 
year in a shipping release (Firefox 3.6).  I don't believe we've had a 
single issue reported in that time.

Realistically, if you're the sort of author who nests divs with 
display:inline set on them 60 deep, I have no problem with telling you 
to set unicode-bidi on them too....  You're clearly not a fan of the 
default UA stylesheet in any case.  ;)
