‚ÄčA cursory read might conclude that "reversing" can only happen once while
they will likely understand that "changing" can happen multiple times.
This is minor point - the two are effectively the same.

Maybe: "Supports both FETCH FORWARD and FETCH BACKWARD during the same scan"

Or:

"Supports SCROLL(able) WITHOUT HOLD cursors"
