My preference would be to markt it at-risk. It's not critical for
East Asian typesetting, but it's necessary for certain fairly common
non-East-Asian uses of vertical text such as side captions on the left.
If we don't have enough implementations and it's blocking PR, we drop
it. Otherwise, if it's not blocking, it stays.
