    The Unicode bidirectional algorithm ALREADY solves problems related to
    vertically-rendered scripts. It's just missing the DATA. As for TR 9,
    it would indeed need some revision to discuss how the algorithm would
    be used in vertical text, but afaict the algorithm itself can already
    handle the relevant bidi issues.
