I think you may be looking at a different pair of fragments.  The
fragments in the original DR are on different pages -- in the 2016
published Part 1, they are the first one on page 292 and the one at
the bottom of page 298.  Neither of those has the <w:rtl/> that you

     This doesn't mean that your addition might not be helpful.
