I'm going out on a limb here, but it may be that the use of tapered hobs has determined a conventional direction (right to left) for tangential feed. Feed direction for a single tool fly cutter probably makes no difference except for what Tom said - keep cutting pressure against workpiece rotation. Just guessing...
