Hmm, maybe a multi-stage sollution:
- Extract the rotated content and render into an SVG. Beware,
  the SVG renderer has a few more bugs than the other.
- Add a rotation transformation to the SVG
- Render the rest of the content, referring to the SVG.
Of course estimating the size of the page master of the rotated
content as well as the SVG dimensions maz be non-trivial, also
multi-page rotated content  content.

If the rotated content isn't mixed with non-rotated content on
the same page, it may be more convenient to use a rotated page
master instead (the usual answer to "I want landscape").
If there are both normal and landscape page sequences, post-processing
with iText will clean it up for on-screen viewers.
