Architects and engineers on commercial jobs will "spec" you to death... Never really had specs inresidential.

Ah I see! Well unless someone tells me it's totally violating common practices (or especially any potential codes), I'm just gonna put them all ground down, as I think it looks better and I seriously dislike the non-uniformity of separate orientations depending upon location..

New hospitals are spec that way.
Commercial is starting to get that way & will become the norm.
Being that all I do is com/indust, it's more the norm now than not.

As for the J-box in a wall, judging by the style of face plate,
someone screwed up in the '50's. I'd just put a recp there, but the style of
face plate does give it so character.
