Because horizontal vs. vertical should be under the control of a higher-level
protocol such as CSS. In order for this to work properly, CSS has to
"reach down inside" the bidi algorithm and jimmy it; or, to put it
another way, the character-level representation of Ogham has to have
knowledge of what overall directionality it is going to be imbedded in.
Both are Bad Things.
