Only because of the way that Unicode handles vertical scripts by
assigning them a LTR direction and leaving it up to higher
levels to make the perpendicular flip. If someone wanted to include
a vertical snippet of Ogham in a top to bottom script, they might
desire to have the Ogham go from bottom to top, and that would
make RTL Ogham reasonable in that context.
It is a pedantic edge case that ought to be considered once
raised (as it has been) even though I wouldn't recommend
actively seeking out other such edge cases. :)
