On the airline seating issue: I am unsure that this plan would actually be any worse. It's working on the long-known notion that shoulders are wider than knees. So, while it would have people facing each other, it would *also* get other people's atms out of your torso space, mean that you weren't sharing armrests with the next person over, and potentially, alleviate the *experience* of crowding while allowing for cheaper tickets.

A fair number of first class arrangements already do something very similar in fact (albiet, WAY more spaciously).

Dunno about you but I get much more travel sick if I have to face backwards. I find reverse taxiing in plants very unpleasant.

Hmm. I don't have that problem. I wonder what fraction of the populace does! If it's a lot, that really could be a problem. Most of the complaints I am hearing involve looking at the other passengers though.
