The problem with that is that MC schedules your study, and note order is part of that. If you change that order, you would be breaking the scheduling.
At the moment, the note order is just chosen randomly, but in version 2.0, each possible order of sides will be scheduled independently, and it wouldn't make sense to change that around.
So if you really want to study reversed, I suggest for now you do 'View Reversed' as you already suggest. In version 2.0, you will be able to study notes reversed, and any that were already in the lesson will be automatically rescheduled (which doesn't happen now with the 'View Notes' option).
