Currently, when map rotation is specified in the print composer, everything on the map is rotated, including labels and textures. Instead, it would be nice to have an option so only the map features are rotated, and the rotated features are then labeled and styled, e.g. horizontal labels are horizontal on a rotated map in the print composer. Some of this can be manually done by specifying an opposite rotation for a texture or label, but there is no way that I know of to make sure curved labels are not upside-down on a rotated map.
