    Murray, Here what I have in mind, let's first agree that there is a
    problem facing Bidi users and make Unicode is not sufficient - alone - to
    display Arabic text correctly with its original directionality. Even if it
    provides the way, it doesn't forces it.
    Next step we can discuss where should be standardized and the best specs
    that minimize the bad impacts and maximize the benefits and guarantee the
    integrity of old and new Bidi Unicode text.
