As https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/52011692/81780548-a6a52b80-9531-11ea-9265-dd6154b4c099.png shows, it isn't just a trick to rotate the entire page (if it were, we could have dealt with it using https://drafts.csswg.org/css-page-3/#page-orientation-prop)

I guess one of the questions this raises, and for which the Japanese government likely provides no guidance, is what happens if you throw Arabic in there: do you get the same effect as if it was set with vertical-rl / upright, rotated, or do you get normal horizontal rtl arabic, and therefore bidi. I suspect that if we do it using `text-orientation: forced-sideways`, then you'd likely get the former, but since `text-orientation` applies to inlines, you could set different values on different runs of text, and get the later.
