SGI did an install in Ireland where they have the IRU chassis mounted
vertically, in those same APC racks.
Seemingly it works quite well - the drawback is that you get three IRUs per
rack rather than four.
But I guess with the APC racks being narrower you do not lose out that much
as you get more racks
per aisle. I must measure this up actually.

(*) Come on. Its Friday. We have a "race condition" in another thread. Let
the horsey puns flow.
