Line up or down

Does it matter (in the inspector sense of the word) if a GFCI receptacle is installed with the line end up instead of down, so that the ground holes of the receptacles are on top?

There is no code (been debated here quite a bit) saying what orientation is required. Some are even mounted sideways..and I believe there are some that can be turned individually after mounting. Seems like I remember hospitals may have some requirement..but thats it.
