Thank you for the link.

My thoughts:
I feel that inline-direction-horizontal/inline-direction-vertical is 
better than direction/writing-mode.  It removes the need for a shorthand 
property (and associated redundancies).  It avoids the block progression 
direction/inline progression direction coupling problems of 
writing-mode.  It avoids the horizontal/vertical direction coupling 
problems of direction.  It's also more intuitive than the direction 
property imo.

The glyph orientation properties/property values seem more complex than 
necessary, but I'll take a closer look.  I feel that up/down/left/right 
is more intuitive for glyph orientation than specifying an angle.  For 
example, it doesn't require remembering whether 90 degrees is left or right.
