HTML 4 dir attribute can be specified globally on any element

Issue: Justification for adding the "dir" attribute to all elements.

Details

Compared with HTML 4.01, HTML 5 adds the @dir attribute to BASE, BR, PARAM, and SCRIPT (which basically has no particular effect). HTML5 also adds it to IFRAME, where it could potentially be useful if IFRAME permitted fallback content that was visually rendered.

HTML5 also drops the following elements from HTML 4.01 that did not allow the @dir attribute: APPLET, BASEFONT, FRAME, and FRAMESET
