I guess if your view of the world is that boxes are always upright, and the lines and characters within them have to use line layout-level selectors to orient themselves, then adding a writing mode may make sense. However, implementers would want all the rules of vertical typography and this example to be shared, so to do so we would rotate the port and just do vertical layout therein as normal.
I see this example as a rotated frame, not as individually distinct lines that happen to be horizontal with rotated characters...
