Any other opinions on this topic? when the cursor (mouse cursor, not text caret) is hovering some text that's been either rotated by a transform, or shaped along a path, should this visual orientation affect the choice of a vertical / horizontal cursor (MAY? MUST?) or should we limit the influence to the writing mode (and associated) properties?
