Thanks for the reminder on this.

A keyword to extract a shape from rendered content has been postponed to
level 2. So that portion of how CSS Shapes handles flipping behavior is
out of scope for this module level.

But, we have updated shapes-from-image in two ways.

First, shape-outside now takes an <image> value instead of a bare URL. So
if the flipping switch is defined as an additional <image> value keyword,
you can use that to specify a flipped shape.

Second, a shape-from-image is sized and positioned as if it were a
replaced element with the element’s used content-box size [1]. So if the
flipping switch ends up as a separate property (like object-fit) then the
flip will be handled there.

So I believe the current draft handles the prospective flipping behavior
for shape-outside, unless the flipping switch takes some form not noted
above.

Does this satisfy the I18N WG’s concerns?
