The naming scheme of "visual" vs "logical" R2L
still confuses me 15.5
years after M17N-1998.
As I understand it, logical R2L you write as L2R but it is displayed as
if it were R2L, while visual L2R you write L2R. The confusion was
caused by the input method kile chooses (and for the record, lyx does
something similar), sorry for any confusion.

Is that what you see in Kile? If not (if you see the text in proper
R2L form), Kile probably just uses pango or similar to display (this
is what Aidan was talking about with getting R2L almost for free with
pango, but I don't think it works that way in Emacsen).
Yes I see R2L. I just sent a message to the kile team asking for details
of their R2L implementation.
Yeah, unfortunately since you want the file in logical order, you
the buffer that way too. So input is trivial but display is really
hard if you want proper bidi. I think the proper thing to do is to
port Eliz's implementation of UAX #9 from GNU Emacs.
Yes, which most likely is quite a bit complicated.... :'(
