Page (correct) vs. TOC (incorrect)

BDI is an HTML 5 tag which tells the browser to isolate a section of bidirectional text.(http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_bdi.asp)

Wikimedia correctly renders BDI tags, but it ignores them when generating the table of contents for a page. 

For the following wikitext:
==== <bdi>[[User:مسعود بوکانی|مسعود بوکانی]]</bdi> (28 edits) ====


... the TOC renders the HTML as: 
<span class="tocnumber">2.76</span> <span class="toctext">مسعود بوکانی (28 edits)</span>


.... the page renders the HTML as:
<bdi><a href="/wiki/User:%D9%85%D8%B3%D8%B9%D9%88%D8%AF_%D8%A8%D9%88%DA%A9%D8%A7%D9%86%DB%8C" title="User:مسعود بوکانی">مسعود بوکانی</a></bdi>

You can view this in action at https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?oldid=138431886.

I've attached screenshots for Chrome (one of the browsers which supports the tag).
