Upper/left or right/down

We discussed al lot of things in London, and one of these things was this: if there’s a puzzle with info outside the grid, where should it be? Obviously, from four sides (Easy as ABC, Sudoku high-low) it is on all four sides. But Magnets, Tents, Battleships and so on have their info on the right and under the grid.

Most people and most puzzlers are right handed. Therefore, it would be more convenient to place the grid info on top and to the left of the grid. So in the future there will be some changes, regarding the looks of some puzzle types.
