GeoJson in shapes_simplified_low does not follow the right hand rule?  XML

As of August 2016 GeoJSON is now a formal IETF specification. And some things have changed from the old informal 2008 spec. So to be valid for the 2016 spec polygons MUST be right-hand wound.

In shapes_simplified_low the geojson fails to meet the above rule and does not validate in most linters e.g

Are there any plans to update this file so that all the geojson meets the IETF spec?
