Jason, ok I get what you are driving at. So how about:

Content is not locked to a specific display orientation<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Frawgit.com%2Fw3c%2Fwcag21%2Forientation_ISSUE-70%2Fguidelines%2Fterms%2F21%2Fdisplay-orientation.html&data=02%7C01%7C%7C5dd8ee8f053a4ef5711808d4aea12bcb%7Cfa7b1b5a7b34438794aed2c178decee1%7C0%7C0%7C636325454633238038&sdata=f%2FVaw9sMlkrZYqxvFpv5FjZfqyIuZD9GUhT0qkumVig%3D&reserved=0>, and functionality of the content is operable in all display orientations, except where display orientation is essential<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Frawgit.com%2Fw3c%2Fwcag21%2Forientation_ISSUE-70%2Fguidelines%2Fterms%2F21%2Fessential.html&data=02%7C01%7C%7C5dd8ee8f053a4ef5711808d4aea12bcb%7Cfa7b1b5a7b34438794aed2c178decee1%7C0%7C0%7C636325454633238038&sdata=Exo5iswJ%2BhqGyE6lJq9O%2Bm0cEl4i69myuiWp3KmFV2U%3D&reserved=0> for use of the content or by user request.
[Jason] That solves the problem, and it also allows for the case in which a user preference is received by the web application (e.g., via the anticipated Media Queries extension mechanism). In practice, if the user has an abiding preference, I suspect they would specify it at the operating system level instead, but covering all the legitimate cases is a good practice in writing an SC.
