I thought "apply bidi" includes reordering.

I didn't want to move it before level calculation.  I thought Roozbeh 
implied it must be done _after_ the reordering.

If line breaks are coomputed before reordering, I don't understand why 
supporting explicit embedding is so much harder than implicit one.
