Lightroom Classic: Color Grading Panel

As someone who's wanted a set of color wheels in both Photoshop and Lightroom for years, I was happy to see this new module. However, operationally the wheels have a clunky feel, compared to the color wheels in other programs I use... and worst of all, the orientation of the colors doesn't reflect the orientation of the colors on a traditional vectorscope. So when I look at my vectorscope, I pretty much have to operate the color wheels in the opposite direction of where the scopes are telling me they want to go. (see attached screen shot).

Which program is in the left screenshot?  Do you know other programs that orient the colors like that as well?

The program on the left is Nobe Omniscope, a scope utility, which works in many video editing programs and also as a standalone to analyze what's on your screen. 

Capture One color wheels use the same orientation as the Adobe Lightroom Classic color wheels.  However, in my experience, going back to 1980, all professional vectorscopes, both software and hardware, orient the color wheels the other way, i.e., rotated, with red at around 11'clock.

The more programs you could list, the more likely you might influence Adobe.   E.g. how do Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, and Resolve do it? 

LR's color grading wheels differ from more common video color grading in other ways too:

I don't use Premiere, but Resolve3 and FCP both use the traditional orientation for the color wheels, i.e., red in "upper left"

Here is a screen grab of a traditional vectorscope, this one from Resolve.  It is displaying its representation of SMPTE color bars.
