PMI Section view direction arrows

I use the PMI section views in models frequently.  One improvement I would like to see is to the side step arrows.  When creating section views in drawings, the arrow direction defines the side to "keep".  In the PMI section, the arrow points to the side to cut.  This is reverse of drawing convention.  An even better graphical guide would be to create the section lines as they are in draft to bettter assist in choosing which side is cut.

Hmmm, consistency across all modes. What a concept...I think the developers must imagine that we would get bored by such predictability and user friendliness.

Or perhaps more likely the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing.
