> If you have a compelling reason to override an image's built-in orientation, please state it here! The CSS-WG is interested in these cases.

One case I can submit is the following: 
this website where product pictures are uploaded internally by different users. 
the pictures are uploaded to the system but currently there is no current possibility for development to rotate images internally, therefore the use of the image-orientation -> from-image in CSS allows with a single css rule - or even by default in the browser if the default value for image-orientation will be from-image - to display all images in the correct aspect. 
Currently if you see that web page from Firefox -  which currently honors handling the image-orientation -> from image - all the machine pictures will be shown with the correct orientation, while in other browsers that don't honor it , the pictures will be shown with a wrong orientation. 
Of course there are thousands of products with thousand of images with this issue.
Please consider using image-orientation -> from-image as a default - or finally determine the image-orientation feature so it can be picked up by all browsers!
