The notion he tries to convey that the writing order reversed for us, but the numbers stayed the same and now is *still* "little endian" must indicate that he meant "little endian" from our current point-of-view and not from the Arabic point-of-view. Your point is not wrong though, but the very notion of "end" is subjective. Some might say the end of the atmosphere is roughly 100km up while others might say it's at ground-level. They'd both be correct.
