Chris, "the baseline" and "glyph coordinate system" are different for upright glyphs in vertical flow.

"Right sloping relative to (vertical) baseline" is #3 of the picture[1] and matches to my understanding.

"Right sloping in glyph coordinate system" is #2 of the picture[1] and is different from my understanding.

Which is your understanding?
