Good catch: looks like that sentence got mangled, but I've now fixed
it. The intended point was that we don't need to label any
Left-to-Right text layout, as it's the default.

Hmm, that's a good question. I'm not sure if that text layout uses a
different mechanism, so I'm cc'ing Lior and Matthew Francis to see if
either one has some insight.

Another good question for the above pair. My understanding is that
top-to-bottom and cjk are often used interchangeably in text layout,
but there may be more nuance to the situation..
