NO, IT WOULD NOT.
Ogham is incised on stone chiefly in a from bottom-to-top direction, though there are examples of left-to-right bilingual inscriptions in Irish and Latin. Manuscript Ogham accommodated the horizontal left-to-right direction of the Latin script, as do fonts, and the reasonable expectation of everybody is for Ogham to be processed on computers with left-to-right directionality.
