I am not speaking in any official capacity, but I belive there is no
chance that the committee would do this. The bidi model is now over 15
years old. It was devised by a rather large committee of experts over a
long period of time. It has been implemented widely in many products for
many years. In all that time and in all these implementations, there has
apparently been no need shown for directional specific punctuation. In
fact, such punctuation would screw up the bidi model; it would make all
existing data obsolete, etc.
