http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/content-models.html#requirements-relating-to-bidirectional-algorithm-formatting-characters

For convenience, where possible authors should use the dir attribute, the bdo element, and the bdi element, rather than maintaining the bidirectional-algorithm formatting characters manually.
--

I would also like it to be removed from a note and made normative (hence the use of "should").
