"Portrait" rotation games?

While waiting for my Thumby to arrive, I'm developing a small game. The "problem" is that the game is played in "portrait mode" (i.e. rotated 90 degrees), as opposed to the default "landscape" screen.

That would require to play with the device rotated 90ยบ to the left. It's a one button game so access to inputs is not going to be a problem even in this position.

But I'm wondering if the game would be accepted on the Arcade, since it's a bit of a special case. The preview image would not match the resolution (or show the game rotated), so maybe it wouldn't fit the "curation" of the list of games.

What do you think?

Here's a dev screenshot:

It would be accepted. In fact, the arcade supports rotated videos/images.
