I agree Steve - that particular F/Eb accidental is a real bugger to choose because both notes are really useful in both directions on a D/G ... if you flip it so that F is on the pull then it fits nicely when trying to play tunes in flatter keys like G min and C - but you lose the ability to play a G7 chord.  Similarly for the Eb (or D#) if you flip it then it's amazing to be able to play a full B major chord on the right hand side but again you lose the amazing grace note from an Eb up to an E for ornamenting tunes in E minor.

My newer 3 row layout has the Eb in both directions and the F on the pull (but also a push F in the middle octave!)
