R6II electronic spirit level - why is upside down?

Hello!

I've used the Canon 5D Mark 4 for about 5-6 years now, and have used the electronic spirit level on pretty much every single shoot (architecture). Having upgraded to the R6 Mark 2, I've noticed whilst the lateral leveller remains unchanged, the vertical leveller is reversed. 

On the 5D, with the camera level with the horizon, if I pitch the camera down, the level meter rises, suggesting where the horizon would be found.

On the R6, with the camera level with the horizon, if I pitch the camera down, the level meter FALLS instead of rising.

After 6 years of using this system, having to work in a completely opposite manner is a nightmare. 

Canon, please add an option to flip the electronic spirit level!
