Since there seems to be agreement this is primarily future proofing, can 
we cover it with a note?

Note: For languages where characters are read vertically instead of 
horizontally, the 320 pixel restriction would be to height, not width.

That looks the same to me, it expands ‘one dimensional’, but it is the 
“equivalent width” aspect in the first part that would need to be width or 
height (in some way).
