what is normal orientation for a tablet?

I think we still show "Normal" orientation in the list of options for a tablet. I'm not sure that tablets have a normal orientation. We probably need a different way to do it.
Should probably be landscape. But in fact, the Display panel should be completely different on a tablet, or even exist (default to mirror, or provide a application-accessible second screen for display), but not the range of computery customisations.
Any idea on what to do going forward with this?
That was fixed in 2 steps:
- there's no "Normal" orientation label (the middle button is a toggle with the a11y label "Rotate by 180")
- if the tablet has an accelerometer (which they usually do), we don't show any rotation buttons
This leaves with my suggestion from comment 1, which is a gnome-shell bug about offering a "presentation" screen (see bug 706432, and bug 750277).
