Request for someone to thoughtfully and critically evaluate RightToLeft DOCX bug fixes

RTL bugs are complicated, and I don't think our testing is geared to RTL
situations, so bad changes have a better chance of causing regressions
and disturbing our users. I have several gerrit patches that should be
critically reviewed by someone familiar with RTL issues.
1.) 3 patches related to Bug 98620 - FILESAVE: DOCX - Error in paragraph
orientation after converting in a RTL user locale
-note comment 28 where I write "But don't necessarily believe
anything here, because the more I think I understand it, the more I find
out how wrong I am."
2.) 3 patches related to Bug 116404 - In Writer, when writing a new RTL
document with locale defined as Hebrew and saving as docx the styles are
saved as LTR
-this one should be safe, but I'd prefer a review instead of just
pushing it myself.
Thanks for investing the time to evaluate and give feedback on these fixes,
