When the XZ plane is mentioned, that mean the plane that contain the X
and Z axis. The normal of that plane is parallel to the Y axis.
It is a common notation to refer to a plane using two intersecting
lines. It's a convention that I learned in high school.
Also, from my high school days, I learned that +X is to the right, +Y is
the up and +Z is forward and that positive rotation is counter clockwise.
So, for me, it's totally obvious.
