Well, in general, that's okay. But the case we are worrying about is a case
like the following: Due to what's on the video, you have a choice of putting
the box in the lower left or the lower right (or the lower center). Because you
think about left-to-right writing systems, you decide to put it lower left.

The 1st/2nd model will work for all left-to-right languages, but for
right-to-left languages, the box will need to be replaced (which the translator
tasked with creating the text may not be able to do) or the result will look
weird.
