Rotated Standard View + Ordinates = confusion

I've seen some posts on what appear to be the problem I see but no real answers. I'm creating a drawing of an assembly in which I've placed a standard view. Prior to dimensioning I wanted to rotate that view 90 degrees. I then tried to use a vertical ordinate dimension. It created a horizontal ordinate dimension.

Basically it used the original orientation of the standard view to guide what a "horizontal" or "vertical" ordinate dimension is. Is this the intended behavior on a rotated standard view? I know that I can create another model view as I would like the part dimensioned and that would solve this issue. I was just looking to see if this behavior is intended.
