Is it possible that the rear-facing dropouts are there to facilitate getting the wheel in and out? With short stays, the tyre might not clear the bottom bracket with vertical or front-facing dropouts.
It was the design of them I've not seen before, not the concept. With a very short wheelbase it can be the only way to fit and remove wheels. I've had conventional dropouts on some frames where the only way to do this was by deflating the tyre so it would go in and past the BB.
