Well, looks like a feature or a bug. :))

$ ls -hog CD0.dat

-rw-r--r--  1  0 Jun 28  14:46 CD0.dat
(minus r; w minus; r minus; minus r; minus minus)

and now ...

$ ls -hog CD0.dat | od -x

722d 2d77 2d72 722d .... 

Definitely wrong byte order.
In human readable format:

(r minus; minus w; minus r; r minus; minus minus)

Exactly the other way round.
Can that be tweaked somehow?
Well, I cannot believe this is really intention ...
