Wasn't gnome-terminal the one that started this bug report?  And you
even tell above that gnome-terminal does NOT treat U+202D correctly.
So which terminals do?

If xterm, the Linux console and mlterm do work, then maybe your
suggestion to do nothing is good enough.

Btw, what do you think about my idea to add a display table entry for
these characters?
