I was thinking the same thing, but as you indicate, it depends on the media.
For a typical PostScript printer, say, it shouldn't make a difference, but
if you are looking at the formatted output in a viewer, say, then (depending
on the viewer perhaps?) there might be a difference in writing directions.
The question is, does DSSSL specify anything about the relationship between
the orientations of glyphs on contiguous but different page sequences with
different (or even identical?) page dimensions?
