IMHO axis in the sketch should have a different name than main axis (such as u,v) as its a local axis, and not always parallel to main axis.
But now with the "Map Reversed" Property, that's easy to switch the normal, within the sketch, that's not a fundamental problem. maybe a global preference to let users choose the default comportement should please very one. I don't think that's a high prior feature lol.

that's where a cross field software as freecad has its limitation. Architect, Mechanical Engigeers, and Body in white designer don't share the same Front view.
for me the front view is the YZ one, the XZ is the Elevation, and XY is the mass plan. so maybe at the end a global user preference make sense.
