A simple (as in "KISS") strategy that should always work is to copy
the entire physical line around the region.  The disadvantage is, of
course, that it could be very long in some rare cases.  Optimizing
that would probably require replacing runs of certain types of
characters with a single representative character of the same type,
and keeping all the directional controls.

We could also replace strong directional characters L/R/AL with the
corresponding mark (LRM/RLM/ALM), which are displayed as (thin)
spaces, and so will be almost invisible, keeping an illusion of
copying just the region of text and nothing else.

Is this good enough?
