It is very difficult to move rotated labels that are very close to each other because their bounding box isn't rotated.
This is easier to understand when actually tried.
It would be easier if the bounding box was rotated the same angle as the label in order to fit the label's text.
Please have a look at attached screenshots (existing and wished situation).
