Sorry, but this gives me almost nothing to work with.

First, this test file is not *etex*, but *xetex* input. Maybe you meant
that earlier also, but please be more precise about these things, as
etex and xetex  are quite different from eachother.

Second, the font is not OpenType, it is an AAT font.

Third, it looks like the output relies on  font- or icu processing.
I can't explain why the latin words are LR otherwise.

Best wishes,
