Then if we can have a neutral hyphen we are in trouble...

But that doesn't solve the problem at all :)
The problem is not when an hyphen/minus is used between numbers (in such
case the LTR order is used anyway, so no need to switch to English);
the problem happens in the other case: when there is an hyphen involved
in a RTL *text* that happens to include some digits (ex: "8-bit" but there 
sure can be others)
