Some may consider URLs irrelevant in this discussion, but if you have
an RTL TLD with a trailing digit followed by a path with a leading
digit, the TLD gets split up, with one piece on one side of the slash
and the other piece on the other side.

http://HEBREW1/2 -->> http://1/2HEBREW

(I don't know whether actual bidi users would find this objectionable.)
