Obviously, anyone who poo-poos this clocking theory, just isn’t sophisticated/high strung/neurotic enough to appreciate the difference!!

This is especially evident when graphic music notation is being performed...

Here I thought you weren't much of a beer drinker, and now you're consuming by the "litre".

Anyway, I believe that was the origin of the engraving on mouthpieces. It has come to be used for labelling purposes, but as anyone with old mouthpieces will have noticed, there used to be a lot of mouthpieces with no labels or anything. Players must have complained that they didn't know how to orient the mouthpiece, and the engraved spot to address that was quickly adapted to serve its current secondary labelling purpose.
