What confusion are you referring to?  Are we talking about a buffer
with or without R2L characters?  And how would setting
bidi-display-reordering to nil resolve that confusion?

IOW, please describe the relevant use cases in more detail.  Without
that, I fear we are having a misunderstanding of some kind.

Because the unidirectional display will one day go away, and having a
user option will be an obstacle to getting rid of it.  We have been
there with unibyte buffers.
