Here's one that I suppose is non-controversial:

 Meters and Data Plots

    Vertical meters should be oriented such that upward movement represents
    increase in the metered value and down represents decrease. 

    Horizontal meters should be oriented such that rightward movement
    represents increase in the metered value and left represents decrease. 
    Analog VU-style meters are considered primarily horizontal.

    3D meters and data plots should be oriented like a cartesian plane:
    up and right represents increase, down and left represents decrease.
