I agree with your reasoning and conclusion.

I don't think adjusting based on writing mode is helpful. The order we  
pick is arbitrary, meant only to ensure that all UA behave the same in  
corner cases. There is no particular significance to that order, and  
therefore it makes no sense to rotate it with writing modes. It would  
bring extra complexity for no gain.
