That said, even full screen apps aside, why is it more likely that you could accidentally bring up Control Center vs. Notification Center? Simple proximity of where people typically hold their fingers as well as where the home button is located?
I'm not the one that said that, but I could see that as being the case. I think it might be more for natural scrolling position. When I hold my phone, I'm usually using my left hand with three fingers on the right side, my index finger up around the camera on the back, and my thumb sitting across the bottom of the screen. I think that's because of my tendency to be pushing my finger up to scroll down in something, whereas people who keep their finger at the top to push down would be scrolling up, which is the least likely scenario of the two, I guess.
