I think it works, yeah.

Of course, this allows for authors to style the annotations themselves
to have a horizontal writing-mode, if they really want to (instead of
inheriting the container's "forced" vertical-rl value).  That's probably
a good thing, and the default behavior will be correct, which is also a
good thing.
