Not on labels.  On (some) objects such as benches and tourist maps we
already have tags to
represent the direction they face.  Those directional tags currently have
no effect on the standard
carto but could do so in the future (particularly if we move to vector
tiles).  Those direction tags
describe reality on the ground in greater detail and may or not be
reflected by the renderer.  Labels
are not reality on the ground but a cosmetic feature which should be up to
the renderer, not the
tagger.  The fix to labels, if one is necessary, should be implemented in
the renderer, not by tagging.
