Not a big fan either, but in this case it seems to nicely encapsulate
the functionality. And I'm still trying to keep the changes to

Generally you'd want to say "this document is RTL" and occasionally
"but this specific table/paragraph is LTR", the PageTemplates and
Frames are just the vehicles to pass this info from the document
down to the paragraphs.
