Description:
8.5 Directionality
http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-its20-20121206/#directionality

Since the section on directionality is unchanged from ITS 1.0, and since some implementers are addressing directionality in reference implementations, this section should be normative.

It may benefit from a non-normative note or section that explains how changes are likely in the near future, and the exact form of those changes is currently under discussion in the i18n, HTML and CSS Working Groups. The changes are expected to include ways of specifying isolation when setting base direction, which will likely supercede the ltr and rtl values as the default. A future version of ITS should address those changes.
