Would a third option work?
In the Description section of the Macintosh Roman section of a TrueType font, include a line of text in a plain text format of which the following line of text is an example.
One could specify precisely which Private Use Area characters were to become RTL when using that particular font.
One would need rendering software that looked for such a string of text in the font file, yet, as far as I am aware, no approval from any committee in order to put this solution into practical use.
