No, I meant you should be able to flip the chemical plant and the refinery in the same way you can rotate them.
That still wouldnt help with blueprints, because the Pipe Layout wouldnt match
it wouldn't match if you flipped EVERYTHING? are you sure?
Actually, I'm a bit unsure now. If you would flip the pipe connections of the buildings, too, it may work. However, that pipe connection order currently is specified in the recipe and not the entity.
Here is a mod for changing pipe layout: https://mods.factorio.com/mod/GDIW-updated
I know at least, that rail layouts are very problematic to flip, but that's another topic.

TL;DR: I official request an advanced interface option "I know what i'm doing, just let me flip everything." option that just 180° rotates fluid-assemblers, pipes, etc and disables the smartness. (I thought the prevent-fluid-mixing saga told us a thing about smartness.)

Yeah that would be a really good solution! The machines get rotated, the pipes flipped. In most cases this would be no problem at all.
Mods: Shortcuts for 1.1, ick's Sea Block, ick's vanilla tweaks

Cool suggestion: Eatable MOUSE-pointers.

sounds too complicated to me, why does it have to be fixed in vanilla when it's a small section of the user base that will... oh right, bp flipping was added into vanilla.

well, the solution there is probably to prevent bp flipping with chemical plants or refineries or anything that doesn't have symmetrical inputs/outputs.

I didn't know I need it before I read it. It could be just a checkbox labelled: Enforce Flip, or something like this. Possibly hidden in the game options menu.

For the rocket count UI, maybe I will not miss it after all? I'll see during my next megabase game

Maybe it could be a “the rest” option
