Yes - I'm sure that is the reason. Otherwise, it would make more sense to do it upside down. Of course since there are usually 2 labelling events, pencil then paper label, there is no reason why the first shouldn't be upside down and the second, done on the stained and coverslipped slide, the right way up (for storage).
How do you cope with reading labels if your slides are stored with upside down writing John?
Or is upside-down reading just another skill you have?

We write the numbers  with the frosted end pointing north, since that's the 
way we file them standing up, the number easily to be read...
