The light indeed is cast from upper-left. This results in bright spot on
the upper-right for flat circle-like icons, for square-like icons
usually linear gradient is used with lighter colours in upper-right
area, for isometric the lightning is a little more complex, but for
ball-like objects it results in bright spot in the upper-left. It's
maybe a bit confusing. In some icons I noticed usage of round gradient
even on square-like shapes and otherwise. I would therefore base the
usage per case-by-case basis (i.e. what looks better and more consistent
with the rest).

You can use the lightning section of the old guidelines [1] as a
reference (note that for 22x22 and 24x24 flat icons the lightning
however should be same like in the tilted table perspective).

If you think some of the icons clearly have the highlight wrong, post
their names here. I am going to make a list of icons with issues (where
one of the issues is guidelines violation) after we settle the definite
version of the guidelines.
