I don't think it makes sense in most cases for ruby internal boxes to have
different writing-mode with their parent. AFAICS, the only exception is
inter-character ruby.

I propose:

In CSS Writing Mode spec, add ruby base container, ruby base, and ruby text
to the exception list, so that they won't be the target of writing-mode
property.

In CSS Ruby spec, make ruby-position always forces the writing-mode of the
ruby text container. When ruby-position is over or under, the writing-mode
of the ruby text container is computed to the same value as its parent.
