The important thing, is that the bidi user may need a key for RLM or LRM
when she's in English keyboard mode also. To be more exact, there should
be some common shortcuts for these, when the user's keyboard modes
include one right-to-left script.

It should be configurable by the application I believe (some applications
will not support a certain script or character), and the block layout is
also important (the user should see all the mathematical symbols
together), I believe.
