My guess is because we need to compute the byte position of the
markers that store the overlay's beginning and end.  But that's just a
guess.

Btw, your original recipe will produce a much faster redisplay if you
set bidi-paragraph-direction of the buffer to left-to-right, instead
of leaving it at its default nil value.  Sorry I didn't mention this
earlier.
