It should not. That's what makes Ogham different from standard
horizontal scripts -- it does have a preferred vertical orientation,
and because turning it upside-down generates different *characters*,
you can't violate that.

Not sure, but I had understood that bopomofo i (which is just one stroke)
was rotated when vertical.
