ASCII is a specification for characters, my opinion is about  default
orientation for any character except graphic symbols and punctuation,
including latin, should be upright. This is the issue regarding gryph
orientation. Character and glyph is different concept.

I do not discuss about CSS spec, I am discussing about UTR#50.
CSS writing mode working draft cleary specifies latin will be sideways
in default. I do not oppose this spec.

UTR#50 and CSS is independent specification. UTR#50 tries to define 
character properties, there is no description that it is for CSS.
