I just had an --admittedly very vague-- idea about this, don't know  
if it is feasible. Jeremias, correct me if I'm wrong...

What about creating an object type, especially meant for use with the  
render-type AFP, that stores the needed info? Something like a  
mapping from 'viewport with id'->'reference-orientation' (maybe only  
for orientation other than zero). That way, you wouldn't need to  
reverse engineer the values from the CTM. In fact, the AFP renderer  
could bypass the CTM completely and get the relevant data from  
somewhere else without having to perform recalculation.

Not really sure about the how, when or where, though... As I said,  
very vague.

Just a thought. Hope it can be of use.
