--- Comment #12 from Philip J├Ągenstedt <philipj@opera.com> ---
My mental model of this is that we have a cue box which in all typical cases
should be 100% of the width, and then you can align the text within it. The
only reason to use a smaller cue box is to avoid overlapping something on
screen, but you still want to make it as large as possible to get as little
line wrapping as possible.

In this model, it doesn't make sense to adjust the size or position of the box
depending on text directionality. Mirroring makes especially little sense,
because then you're pretty much guaranteed to overlap the thing that the box
was moved in order to avoid.
