Obviously I know nothing about any of this, so I'm just talking as
someone who would like to use this stuff without knowing anything much
about what Emacs does internally.

To me, a nice interface to create a bit of text (that may later be
chopped up before insertion) would be to have a function like
(bidi-make-separate-string "lala").  This could perhaps be implemented
like (propertize "lala" 'bidi-region (make-unique-identifier)).

That is, what I'm saying is "make a string that will be treated
independently for bidi purposes".  If I insert two such strings next to
each other, I want them to be separate, even if they happen to have the
same l2r/r2l properties, so there would be no merging of regions.

I think.
