I think the answer to this is that, if you wanted to rotate a table
using simple-page-sequence, you would need to put it on a separate
page, break the chapter into two parts (before and after the table)
and concatenate the resulting sosofos.

Maybe you could avoid this mess with full support for the page
feature and multiple writing directions.
