I think the text of idnabis-bidi-06.txt should just remove CS
from the list of characters allowed in either RTL labels or LTR labels.

The entire set of bc=CS characters is DISALLOWED in the
tables document, and there is no reasonable prospect that
that would ever change -- many of these characters are
DISALLOWED in labels on multiple grounds.
