These are small editorial comments, so sending them on my own account.

2.1. Specifying Directionality: the ‘direction’ property

[1] "The value of the ‘direction’ property on the root element is also 
propagated to the initial containing block and, together with the 
‘writing-mode’ property, determines the document's principal writing 
mode. (See below.)"

Shouldn't that be "blocks"?

2.2. Embeddings and Overrides: the ‘unicode-bidi’ property

[2] "Normally (i.e. when ‘unicode-bidi’ is ‘normal’) an inline element 
is transparent to the unicode bidi algorithm; content is ordered as if 
it were not there."

The 'it' near the end is ambiguous.  I assume it refers to the inline 
element. Maybe better to say that.

[3] "The final order of characters within in each bidi paragraph"

remove 'in'

2.4. Box model for inline elements in bidirectional context

[4] "bidirectional text can cause an inline boxes to be split and 
reordered within a line."

boxes -> box
