I believe Ellis Amdur and others have addressed the historical issue of OSensei changing this
While I do enjoy thinking about O-sensei's possible thoughts on this matter and what the "exercises" done in the dojo are good for.. Ellis Amdur in Hidden in Plain Sight also presents another reason for this backwards setup. It could be an artifact of Takeda's paranoia.
