Ah, but that *was* the standard - the rest of the World got it wrong. 
:-) The idea was that "dead" faders were out of the way.

When i joined, quadrant faders and even some massive rotary faders 
were still in use.

When the BEEB stopped designing its own equipmant they had to change 

In the Film Unit, we had a BBC portable mixer which often needed to be 
extended by a hired mixer and it kept you awake remembering which way 
to fade each one.
