We should try and fix this confusion.  Emacs's nomenclature is not
non-sensical, but if someone tells me he's "scrolling down the
document", it means he's moving point towards the end, not
the opposite.  So the problem is that up/down is not unambiguous and we
should use other words.  E.g. scroll-towards-end or scroll-towards-beginning.

Similar issues hold for split-window-(horizont|vertic)ally.
