Is there a good reason the front brake has to be on the left side?

I want to swap my brake levers, to match my motorcycle for one, and so I can signal my turns and still have access to the front brake.

This is for a single speed bike that I use for commuting and running errands. I signal my turns all the time (being a good road citizen and all that).

Oh my bike has front and rear brakes. They are currently the standard front on left, rear on right. I just want to reverse that. That way when I am signaling, I am removing my hand from the rear brake and still able to use the front brake, but when I really need to brake I'll have both available.
