the one with JavaScript seems more clear to me (as it's more evident that it's dynamically derived). "current" is kinda weird because setting the orientation is an async operation, so by the time you work out what "current" is, it might not longer be the "current" one... so it's kind or a race condition.

Apps can have multiple orientations and it appears to be somewhat media query dependent. I'm cooking up something different for the manifest but would like terms to align.
