    From this point of view, would not it be more practical (for
    implementation's sake) to have the default directionality for Rovas set to L
    and override it with RTL overrides when desired? Especially considering that
    it is written LTR practically as often as RTL? At least, this way,
    implementations already developed for Old Italic and Egyptian Hieroglyphics
    could be simply extended to Rovas.
