Why? I am writing a test for the css3-ui test suite. css3-ui has a provision for what to do if vertical text is supported (which is what I am trying to test), but it does not require vertical text to be supported.

Not supporting vertical text should not affect conformance with css3-ui, which is what my test is trying to assess.

Sure.

I don't think it is helpful to make a UA fail the test suite of css3-ui because they don't support something that is not required by css3-ui.
