There are two different geodetic conventions to the sense of the rotations used for 7-parameter transformations. There is the right-handed rule used by the Americans and the Australians, and the left-handed rule used by the Europeans.
Explanations regarding which is "correct" generally deteriorate into ethnocentric insults ... :-)

That was it. Thanks also to Clifford for the same hint. Could someone
explain the logic to me ? Why negate the translation, but not the
rotation compared to the WGS84->Bel72 transformation ?
And: should the information linked to EPSG code 31370 be corrected ? How
should I go about doing this ?
