I'm not sure how it would have come-out since your brower's/mailor's Bidi
might have interacted and displayed something not intended. All the Bidi
docs and references use this format (capitals denote a Bidi character such
as Arabic). As noted I'm not sure we have any say now in how things are
done, but this is yet another lesson for us to not sit on our posteriors
and instead get involved in the various standards committees.
