Frankly, I doubt that there is a single source file with R2L comments in
the world, let alone R2L identifiers.

I wasn't talking about identifiers.

I don't know how many comments in R2L languages are out there, but I
hope you will agree that strings with R2L text are a definite
possibility, and should be supported.

Sorry, I misread "strings" for "identifiers". Strings are important indeed.

Unlike "special" and plain-text buffers, the bidirectionalization of
programming modes just seems to have very little to no value right now.

Which is why the relevant support for them was not the 1st priority.
But that doesn't mean we need to dismiss it as something to be
supported in the future.
