Ground glass/view camera LCD mode [i.e., reversed vertically and horizontally]?

Maybe this is a stupid idea, but in Betty Edward's Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, one of the exercises to swap seeing into R-mode is to have an image upside down as you try to draw it.  And it occurred to me that this may be one of the reasons why Ansel Adams liked his view cameras--you can judge shapes and composition as shapes and composition more easily when the image you're looking at is inverted.

Would it be possible to have the LCD in liveview reverse the view so that it's upside-down and reversed left-to-right, the way it would be on the ground glass of a view camera?  I know there's an "upside-down" mode for macro shootings with their cameras upside down on tripods to get low to the ground, but only the information overlay is actually reversed.  Here, I kind of want the opposite--to have the image reversed, but the information overlay left alone.

So, seems like it would be doable. But worth doing, that's up to you guys. :)
