I'd expect clockwise and counterclockwise to continue to be used until a better term comes along. After all, we still say 'jury-rigged' (or jerry-rigged) although nowadays English speakers rarely come into contact with sailing ships. And 'red tape' is the bane of many of us, although it's been a long time since documents were tied up in actual red tape.
