The attribute is only about text portions that can be rotated. The 
restrictions to the best of my knowledge exist because the purpose of 
the attribute is to give text portions a vertical alignment, rather than 
a horizontal alignment, but not to generally rotate text portions within 
a text. Which means what you can achieve with the attribute is to have a 
paragraph where the first word is lets say horizontally oriented, the 
2nd vertically, and the third again horizontally.

While one may of cause allow to specify arbitrary angles, I don't know 
whether there is really a use case for that, and I'm only not sure what 
the implementation effort would be for such a feature, given that line 
breaks may occur in the text, line heights have to be calculated, and so on.

Graphical objects are rotated by the draw:transform attribute, and there 
is for instance also an attribute that allows to rotate the full content 
of a table cell. These support arbitrary angles.

Best regards
