FWIW, I'm somewhat shocked by the tone you are taking. You disagree
with Eli, that's fine, but:

So far, so good. Emacs is extensible for a reason. If it doesn't suit
you, you can always extend it.

What you can request from a maintainer is that (s)he makes your task
easier, by providing the necessary knobs and levers.

But this, for my taste, at least, goes definitely too far. I think
Eli knows much more about Emacs and bidi than most of the people
around here taken together. He may be wrong on whatever thing (we
all are sometimes), and convincing him is sometimes hard work, but
accusing him of trolling is Just Wrong. IMO.
