I prefer to use the POV the reader is most likely to have in actual use. On a workbench, that's usually facing the panel in question directly, but in an actual installation one might easily be looking at it over the top, upside-down. Field service can be fun that way...

Is it "standard" to locate stuff (like rooms and features of a house, or parts of an appliance) by referring to the overall item (equipment, building, etc.) as though the reader is facing it front on? Or should it matter, as long as you specify the point-of-view in the current situation?
