For a Plot3D when the value of one of the labels in AxesLabel is a 
string of some length, each label is nonetheless printed upright.  And 
this this makes the body of the graph itself smaller just to squeeze in 
the long label.

Is there some way to change the label orientations so that the labels 
flow in the same direction as the axes themselves -- other than to 
construct a Text[...] or Inset[...]?  And without merely breaking the 
label's text with "\n"

(I should think that with scientific 3D plots, especially, this would be 
a common situation.)
