I would argue though that this isn't symmetrical. Left side versus
right side yes, but not top/bottom. There are no languages that I know
of that read bottom-up.

While I, too, like symmetry I don't think that this is a case of that.
The first character and first line have no equivalent in bottom line
and bottom character.

And if we did a poll I'm fairly positive people would be
overwhelmingly against the idea.
