I see. I thought that was an oversight in FOPropertyMapping.

See the following sentence in Section 6.4.15, “fo:region-before”:
    “The reference-orientation and writing-mode of the
    region-viewport-area are determined by the formatting object that
    generates the area (see 6.4.5 fo:page-sequence). The
    reference-orientation of the region-reference-area is set to "0" and
    is, therefore, the same as the orientation established by the
    region-viewport-area. The writing-mode of the region-reference-area
    is set to the same value as that of the region-viewport-area.”

So the region-reference-area has the same orientation as the

Frankly, I’m not willing to look at the XSL-FO 1.0 Recommendation.
I don’t have the energy to understand the logic that’s explained there,
understanding one version is already hard enough. But, most of all,
I don’t want to have two versions loaded in my head at the same time.
I would completely confuse things between the two. It’s already easy
enough to make confusions with just one version.
