Not an oversight.  Users of bidirectional scripts expect
Control-arrows to move by words in the paragraph direction, but they
don't expect Meta-arrows to do that.  In fact, I'm not aware of many
applications that bind Meta-arrows to cursor motion commands.

That said, I have no objections to make Meta-arrows do the same, if
you think being consistent is better.  I don't think it will surprise
users of bidirectional scripts if we make Meta-arrows behave similarly
to Control-arrows.
