In the last sentence of the 3.1 Current orientation[1] paragraph: It 
says: "In both if the device is in landscape-primary and is rotated 90 
degrees clockwise, that should be represented as portrait-primary."

That last case/sentence cannot apply to *both* previous ones, that last 
case is describing a 'landscape-primary' normal/default orientation. 
Therefore, it only reflects "devices whose normal orientation is a 
landscape mode".

'In both' should be removed from the sentence, and it needs an 
additional sentence with another case instead. Likely one that describe 
a counter clockwise (-90 degree) case to differentiate both 90 from -90 
rotations. As it is phrased now, it's difficult to get a full 
understanding of left and right rotations.

The MSDN doc is helpful in clarifying this:
