It's actually kind of nice that the up and down symbols seem to be pointing in the direction they mean. That makes it a bit easier to remember

In English, the opposite of 'up' should be 'down', while the opposite of 'bottom' is 'top'. You are mixing them here. Does shita mean both 'up' and 'top'?

Why is "on" not accepted?

It should be. As someone else says, "on" is accepted in their constructed sentences. It seems this bit of Japanese isn't well developed.
