Actually, the message I am thinking about are not email.

I am thinking about messages to display (in an Emacs temp buffer)
to give information to the user, or query the user.
We may want to include a pertinent part of the buffer into the message,
and we should make sure it gets bidi-formatted the same way in the message
that it does in its original context.

The text to copy from the buffer might be a URL, or anything.  This
facility would be general, but we might want to use it as part of
handling strange URLs.
