Cut and paste errors are a really annoying problem with RTL scripts.  So easy to make.

You appear to take for given that EAI becomes widely supported. That's not exactly certain at the present. IMO, if does become widely supported, then we'll have learnt enough to answer that question, and the one below.

But I'll offer an anecodotal comment which, perhaps, hints at an answer:

JFYI, I am supposed to have an Indian address, but it's broken right now, due to someone's cut and paste error. Such mistakes happen easily when you can't read or write the letters you're trying to use.
