We (Joey and I) figured out how to best deal with this. As a result the 
predefined hebrew feature now will do the right thing for fonts that 
assume some specific ordering. So, this should work okay:

\definefontfamily[hebrew] [rm] [SBL Hebrew] [features=hebrew]

in the most recent upload.

Maybe there should be a wiki page that summarizes tests with hebrew 
fonts (but I leave that up to Joey).
