           Summary: No easy way to lock to a set of accepted orientations
                    if one UA doesnt support one of them

Some apps and games might work fine in a set of orientation and thus try to
lock to the accepted set or orientations. That might be [portrait-primary,
portrait-secondary], unfortunate that lock will fail for UAs disabling
portrait-secondary due to:

For each orientation in the orientations list, run the following sub steps:
If orientation isn't part of the allowed orientations, the steps must stop here
and return false.

Which means that the app will have to try to relock to any kind of subset of
the decided allowed orientations.
