    Well, the implementations is (as far as I can tell), not quite
    automatic... Anyhow, the number of bidi mirrored characters
    is to be greatly reduced (IIUC). I've argued for that only
    parentheses-like characters should be given (or keep)
    the bidi-mirrored property.

    Also, when Greek (for instance) is written in the ancient
    boustrophedon way, the glyphs are mirrored on every second
    line of a paragraph (if not the whole text, I'm not sure). Yet,
    Greek letters are not given the bidi-mirrored property.
