The "consensus" in that group (Japanese typographers) was not absolute 
and the discussion is still continuing:

* Twitter discussion (in Japanese): 縦中横について

* A blog post (in Japanese): CSS3での日本語縦中横を考える (Thinking about tate-chu-yoko in CSS3)

I hope the Writing Modes Level 4 will have much controls for 
tate-chu-yoko and this discussion will help for that.
