You might be able to have it by starting the header string with a
u+200F RIGHT-TO-LEFT MARK (except that tabulated-list-mode might
outsmart you, I didn't try).

In any case, we already do something very similar for R2L paragraphs,
so implementing this should be very easy; I think the greatest
challenge is to come up with a natural way of telling the display
engine to do that.  Patches are welcome.
