I've seen/done 'NS-WE' (the common one -- top to bottom, left to right
within that) and 'NS-EW' ('left handed', if you will). I've never
actually had cause to use SN ordering, but I can see cases where it
might be useful, and it might be interesting to try a 'WE-NS' or 'EW-NS'
So. Specifying gravity could well be useful, I think.
