Having used a view camera for many years, often taking 8x10 glass negatives, I'm not sure what is meant by upside down and "backwards." The image seen on the ground glass is simply upside down. But it is not backwards, if by that is meant "reversed." You can still read writing normally. It is not backwards, but simply upside down, rotated 180 degress from the direct view without the camera.
Maybe I'm thinking too much with the L-side in this nit-picking. Regardless, seeing the composition as a whole while seeing the details when one takes a picture is the central challenge.
