While your proposal was more or less my initial idea and makes sense, we chose
for the following:
<h1 id="firstHeading" class="firstHeading"><span dir=""> because this will keep
the title at a consistent place, i.e. the side depending on the user interface
language direction. Secondly, we did not use dir="ltr/rtl" because for some
pages the title is in a different language (or mixed) than the page content
language (e.g. MediaWiki namespace pages, usernames, ...). Instead, we (Amir in
r105854 / r105870) use dir="auto" which detects the direction. It's currently
only supported by Chrome but it will be soon in e.g. Firefox.

Because it is at a consistent place (based on UI) it can be flipped normally so
it doesn't need mw-content-{dir}

So we could WONTFIX this bug, if you agree.
