Yes, of course you are right. However, many of the older LaTeX packages 
are not being developed very actively any more (or not at all in some 
cases) so it makes it difficult to decide what to use when one need the 
functionality of some of the older packages but also wants to work with 
unicode, etc.

Anyway, you have certainly done a great deal to make bidi very 
functional and I am very grateful for that.
