Orientation of touch-screen display for RHD cars - v9

It has always seemed to me that the position of various things on the screen has been designed for LHD. For example, the list of turns in the satnav (which includes the voice volume and, in v9, a Settings button) and the Controls and Settings menu items are all on the left, and the Charge, HomeLink, Audio and Nav buttons are to the left of centre; no thought seems to have been given as to whether their positions are best for RHD.

From the images available so far, this seems to remain true for v9:

I think the display should be inverted for RHD so that all these things are on the right and therefore nearer the driver. I'd be interested to know if other people agree with me.
