One of the design goals of the TurboLid, as I understand it, was to put the 
large "bell" of the covers at the low end of the harp, where most players 
concentrate most of their notes, and where more projection is desired.  This 
also forms a more comfortable cup for grip left/cup right players.  Inverting 
the lid puts the bell at the wrong end of the harp for accentuating projection, 
and also might induce clearance problems with the low reeds.
