A matter of vision. Even in real world you don't look at a tree from above, that's why the root (at least I think so).
The more you go above, the more splits there are. It's flipped when rendering (e.g. image) probably because people got used to scrolling down for everything. :D
And a parent may kill its child after its function is done.
Does anyone know or care to guess how this peculiar naming convention came about? I'm curious

(Or just flip the Y axis, but my method is more fun)
