LO can rotate textboxes, but frames cannot be rotated?

> Frames cannot be rotated

> For text at 180 degrees rotation in Word before Word 2010, you need to use Frames in landscape mode.

We should not be able to rotate frames. This would introduce export issues. Rather frames need to be extended to correctly render landscape pages like word does.
