Maybe someone who has access to a big group of "qualified" swordspeople (ie Iaido-L) can pose this question (if it isn't already a frequently asked question).
It is. And the reasons given for sword on the left are pretty much the same as those in the article.

Sure, it may be more convenient for that one person if he switches sides, but it messes up how he interacts with everyone and everything around him (including his opponents). It's sort of like asking, "Why can't I drive on the left side of the road?"
