Yes.  Again, the UBA mandates that.  European numbers and Arabic
numbers (what you call eastern-arab-digits) behave almost the same as
far as the UBA is concerned.  There are differences between them, but
they are very minor.

But in Hebrew this is expected: numbers are always displayed
left-to-right, no matter if the paragraph is L2R or R2L.

Cursor motion in Emacs is in logical order.  I know that some people
find this confusing, but at least some bidi-aware applications out
there do the same.  It should be possible (although not trivial) to
add visual-order cursor motion to Emacs, but logical-order movement is
a must, and so it was implemented first.
