Are you thinking about using directional controls in buffer names only
if the buffer name needs it, btw?  If so, I'm not sure that's the best
idea.  For starters, code that deals with buffer names would need to
make non-trivial tests to know whether to remove these controls or
not, if that code needs the original undecorated buffer name, e.g. to
compare it with the base names of the files visited in buffers.  It is
IMO better to always decorate with directional controls.
