The reason they changed the direction is that it's more of the standard across the industry and it aligns the exposure scale with the histogram - brighter is to the right and darker to the left. If you think about, there are few things where negative amounts are to the right; it's definitely not the standard in math.

Personally, I think it makes sense, and I've aligned all my cameras, older and newer, with this orientation.
