You're right, the tie is still horizontal, i.e. it will end half a
line too low or too high (I lack the expertise to change tie direction
as well). It still looks rather good to me - way better than the
alternative (tieing to an invisible note of the appropriate pitch)
because that would let the tie end much too soon.

Supporting non-horizontal ties could be good for other purposes too - e.g. a tie may be slanted in {\stemUp g2. ~ g2} to avoid the augmentation dot, or in << {<e e'>2 ~ <e e'>8} \\ {g2 a} >> to avoid the stem. Even if these collisions are not resolved automatically, a manual way to slant the tie could be nice. Also, ties can cross staves - but that's probably much less common than tying enharmonic variants.
