One of the authors just answered my question about setting the variable 
bidi-display-reordering and I quote 

| I kept all of the default configurations in each of our tests, so whichever
| the default config is would be what we used.

I just tested: emacs -Q 

Then that variable is set to t.

Maybe that is not a good idea?

I am wondering how the test would be with the variable set to nil.
