I like how recovery compress the highlights at the right of the histogram without interfering with the overall brightness, but it tends to make the highlight look flat. So, there should be negative for fill light. It should work like fill light, but will affect the highlights instead of the shadows.

There is definitely a very different algorithm at play for highlight recovery versus fill-light. I too like the way fill-light works better. I hope Adobe reworks the highlight recovery algorithm for Lr4, to help with that "flat" look...
