We could write something like:

This property is used to request that a document is displayed in
portrait or landscape mode and can be used to enter a specific
orientation and inhibit orientation changes when tilting the device.
The property should be respected for standalone web apps and when the
document is displayed in fullscreen. It is recommended that it is
ignored for normal web navigation to avoid confusing the user.
