Assuming that SignWriting display controls can be applied to _any_ character will result in a large number of alternate encoded representations for text elements. If encoded, then I will expect UTC to stipulate that rendering engines must not allow such display controls to affect the display of any other characters.

15 rotation characters have already been proposed for signwriting:
Look at page 4. If those characters could be applied to Latin letters, we’d have:
ʁ = ʀ + SWR13
ᴙ = ʀ + SWR9
ᴚ = ʀ + SWR5
ᴝ = u + SWR3
ᴟ = m + SWR7

That would be very practical.
This would absolutely be the wrong thing to do.
