First of all, which doc say this?
Secondly how does SPI know the endianness of the sensor which is what
actually matters here? I2C can in theory make these guarantees as there
is an expected byte order on the wire (even if quite a few drivers don't
conform to the spec anyway). No such guarantee can exist for SPI.
