It seems to me that as far as Ogham goes the positioning of successive glyphs is
more comparable to the way a graphics program will position text along a path
(allowing text to go in a circle, for example) than the differences between
LTR, RTL, vertical and boustrophedon scripts. The text isn't composed of a BTT
passage, a LTR passage and a TTB passage, but of a single passage which follows
a path which changes through those three directions.
Paths are not a plain text matter.
