It would make discussion more productive if you actually remembered what
you are getting defensive about.

The point of discussion was the display (and preparation) of mode lines
and prompts as one example of Emacs-prepared text, going to special
buffer displays like dired, and whether we want Emacs to insert
directional marks in content like that even when no R2L material is

The ability to edit bidirectional text is not affected either way by
Emacs inserting directional marks into strings it generates.

Making Emacs annoying to L2R users might be one way to capture their
attention.  I can't deny it worked for multibyte support.  But I am not
fond of that approach.
