[XeTeX] PDF Creator: "bidi"?

As noted, because bidi isn't the creator of the PDF file and still claims it is. "Created by Xe(La)TeX with bidi package" (something like "Created by LaTeX with hyperref package") would be a little bit more acceptable, don't you think?

>This is question for Vafa: can you explain what is the reason that in .pdf file, created using xelatex+polyglossia with use of arabic as secondary language (the main is latin), bidi is credited as "creator"? I do understand that bidi is used for arabic, but, with due respect, I think it's very unfair to declare it as creator application instead of xe(la)tex.
I have done this because someone in the past requested it. Why is this unfair? 

Best wishes,
