I think it is obvious, given the premise that Emacs is not going to treat
R2L text as a second-class citizen: why would "forward" be associated with
anything other than toward EOB?  (In particular, the only other
possibility seems to be for "forward" to be a synonym for "right".  That
would make Emacs' bidi support something of a farce, for reasons that
become pretty obvious once you consider things like `forward-paragraph'.)
