I suspect the idea is to have a way of unobtrusively supplying the
Bidi_Mirrored value in a character pick-list, namely the use of the
words 'OPENING' and 'CLOSING' rather than 'LEFT' and 'RIGHT'. As I
dimly recall the use of ']a, b[' to denote an open interval, the
proposed solution is not complete, but the complete solution is not
obvious to me. I for one don't want to have to choose a non-English
locale to type right-to-left text.
