Currently, I think that all musical symbols should have the Rotated orientation in vertical lines, because each of tends to have a direction, and short bars with musical notes quoted in vertical lines should be rotated.

U 1D000..1D0FF Byzantine Musical Symbols 907 R
U 1D100..1D1FF Musical Symbols 908 R
U 1D200..1D24F Ancient Greek Musical Notation 909 R

Also, extremely few Japanese fonts have these characters. Also, fonts supporting these tend to be implemented as proportional fonts that can be set nicely to compose musical scores. From these, I believe these characters should be set in the Rotated orientation when set in vertical lines, so that spacing can be done appropriately. Do you have any other ideas about this type of characters?
