--- Comment #6 from Philip Jägenstedt <philipj@opera.com> ---
Thanks, Richard. To sum it up, it's the difference in rendering between these
two divs:

<div style="direction:rtl">bahrain مصر kuwait</div>
<div style="text-align:right">bahrain مصر kuwait</div>

Kind of obvious in hindsight, really.

I would propose a VTTCue.direction with values "ltr", "rtl" and "auto".

(It looked tempting to merge VTTCue.vertical into VTTCue.direction, but these
are separate things in CSS and the above bahrain case can be turned into
vertical examples where text directionality matters.)

Then add the DEFAULTS block to have that setting on all cues by default.
