You're right, this was one of the biggest point in my discussion with authors/publishers.

It was also discussed that having sideways Latin in Italic is more important, and if it's needed to make it right, the "opposite" way also works for them.

Since as you said in another e-mail, there's no correct or perfect way, we're choosing the least problematic, the most reasonable, while sufficing the requirement. The "opposite" way does not work if it slants Unicode ambiguous code point in opposite direction.
