Yeah, I was looking for "isolate" and that made me forget about the case
insensitive flag.

Updates on the original topic, there were some back and forth since last
discussed here, but the current idea is to change the "dir" attribute to
inherit into shadow tree to keep it in sync with direction/unicode-bidi.
It's currently tracked in webapps bug 27359[1].
