#8 block vs. inline directionality

If you look at other applications that have directionality control, you'll see that the most basic (and the most used) control is the block level one, not inline.

It makes sense when you think about it: most times you will want to set the general direction of the paragraph or page, not of indevidual words (which are many times covered by inserting a lrm or rlm to the proper place).

Haveing the default inline and not block is rather counter-intuative, and can be very confusing for users who are used that the directionality control is for a block from other applications.
