"For top-to-bottom text, the block-progression-direction always points 90 degrees counter-clockwise from the reference orientation vector because the only available top-to-bottom writing mode is tb-rl."

I think this sentence needs to be deleted, since SVG Tiny doesn't support vertical text. If it is there as a general statement, it should be made clearer, and corrected to say that tb-rl is not the only vertical writing mode.
