I got 3 passes when I tried that test myself on 2016-11-09 with Chrome 
56. I still get 3 passes with Chrome 58. You must be referring to the 
test itself. This is where I believe you should try to reach Koji Ishii, 
who authored that test, and notify him that Traditional Mongolian glyphs 
should not translate upright when 'text-orientation: upright' is 

I am under the impression that it is the UTR50 document that should be 
reviewed and corrected here in light of what you and Elika have been 
exchanging about.

No, I do not think that the test is testing anything else or anything 
more than 'text-orientation: upright'. It uses a special font too via a 
font-face at-rule:
@font-face {
     font-family: "orientation";
     src: url("support/adobe-fonts/CSSHWOrientationTest.otf");

> I couldn’t find any other test for upright Mongolian.

There is no test specifically testing 'text-orientation: upright' when 
being applied on Traditional Mongolian glyphs in the writing-modes test 
suite nor over in Richard Ishida's website:
