    Any characters you assign to the PUA can have any properties you choose,
    including directionality. The default LTR directionality for the PUA
    doesn't mean you can't assign RTL characters to it. (You might have
    trouble getting rendering engines to understand what you want, but you
    get used to that working with the PUA.)
