You say "it takes care of everything" as if all problems of Arabic  
typography have been solved. They are not! It would be interesting to  
find out what exactly your system does more than (a) Omega and (b)  

And I don't really see what the issue is: are we talking for or  
against the bidirectional algorithm? or is it for or against your  
system's typesetting features?

In the first case, then I think the issue is clear: every current  
Arabic system must be bidi-compliant. In the second case, I would like  
to know more about your system, so please do not disappear.
