I don't see any particularly bad slowdown at all, but maybe I didn't
make all the steps (I don't have 'curl').  Do you see the same
slowdown if you fetch the URL with, say, WGET, and then visit it in
Emacs?  If not, how to reproduce this without 'curl'?

It normally doesn't.  Only some very special files can benefit from
setting bidi-paragraph-direction non-nil.

Yes.  Paragraph direction doesn't disable reordering, it just
determines whether the text will start at the left or the right edge
of the window.

I might be able to say something intelligent about this if I have a
recipe for reproducing the slowdown, and have some quantitative idea
of the slowdown (how much time does it take for Emacs to respond to
some specific command).
