No, the point is that the rests belong to the upper voice, and get
pushed below a lower voice if the stem-direction of the upper voice is
flipped.  See the attached examples.

Dont know what is wanted in a "Summary for issue report", but perhaps
something along these lines:

 "Place rests where the noteheads of the voice goes in the column - by
 default: odds up, evens down - regardless of stem-direction of voice."

There may be reasons to not have them like this by default, but i cant
figure any places where the opposite (the current behaviour) would be
wanted (ie. in one voice: noteheads above, rests below).
