If they hung clipless side up, you'd have to kick them over with the toes of your street shoes. If you're heading out for a lunchtime errand in polished leather dress shoes, that would be asking for trouble.

It's clearly better that the A520's hang the way they do. Sure, it's unnatural for those of you who grew up with SPD-like mountain clipless pedals that require you to just mash your foot down. But I expect you can learn to use the A520s if you really want that side for street shoes.
Were discussing A520's not A530's (or M324's).
