it still changes the language, which could be very useful if your XKB
configuration does not include a keychord to switch languages.

I don't know unlimited undo is fine, it should be cleared whne the
file is saved like most apps though.

I agree on this one it makes no sense at all.

the UNICODE standard defines some non printable control
characters, among them are BIDI control chars for hard coding text
direction in the document, you can insert these by pressing the right
mouse button inside the texbox.
if you use UTF-8 these control characters are saved, if you use Plain
UTF-8 text instead they are stripped out of  the document and only
printable characters are saved (I'm not sure if the implementation
strips all control chars or only the BIDI ones though).
