Hm, "unidirectional" and "bidirectional" are terms I'm having trouble
figuring out the meaning of here.  You seem to be using them as,
effectively, synonyms for "non-segmented" and "segmented", but I don't
see any way in which directionality makes any sense for either, so I
can only infer I'm missing something.  Is it anything you can explain?
