Hwæt! I noticed only now that the Bidirectional Category of braille
characters is "ON - Other neutrals"!
AFAIK, that is completely broken!
A run of braille text *must* remain LTR in a bidi context, because braille
is never RTL. This "ON" bidi category makes it impossible to correctly
encode, e.g., a manual of Braille in Hebrew or Arabic, because the braille
runs would get swapped by the Bidirectional Algorithm.
