Why would they disagree? There is a huge difference between

a) "Vertical typesetting is not important" (obviously false, is there in  
dvi mode); and
b) "Vertical typesetting [in pdf mode] is not a priority at the moment"  
(facts of development life)

Prioritization is inescapable...

:-)

Best wishes
Idris
