@realskk Not thinking form the spec, but from what's desirable, this 
is an interesting question. I am not sure why you think this is 
specific to initial letter though. Don't you have the exact same 
problem of quote orientation with regularly sized TCY?

Moreover, the initial letter probably means you cannot get either of 
the results you showed, since the initial letter has to be on the 
first inline-level child of the block container, and in your example, 
there is something before it: the quote. Initial letter can have 
quotes inside it, but not before it.

If we leave initial letter aside, and want to deal with automatic 
quote orientation, and presuming that you find the first example 
nicer, we'd have to deal with a codepoint based solution, since `""` 
or `“”` or `‘’`would want to be upright, but for `「」` or `『』` you 
would probably want the the vertical glyphs.
