Phil I believe you have our intent correct.  It can be flown in line back towards center box or optionally cross box before the spin entry.

Here is the maneuver description:

Top Hat from the top with options 1 roll down, 2 of 4 point roll up (option 3/4  roll down, 2 of 8 point roll up) (T):  From upright push through 1/4 loop to a vertical down track, hesitate perform 1 roll, optionally 3/4 roll, hesitate, push 1/4 loop to inverted flight, hesitate, push 1/4 loop to a vertical up track, hesitate, perform 2 of 4 point roll, if optional 3/4 roll was performed on the down track perform 2 of 8 point roll, hesitate, push through 1/4 loop to exit upright.

My thoughts on cross box maneuvers for masters pilots as they progress in skill:  Some need the cross box to reposition especially when flying in a cross wind.  The better flyers are already in position and the cross box can take them out of position.  The next level prepares for the cross box by sliding in or out prior to it and the best flyers don't seem to prepare for it and don't seem to move in or out even though they just flew a cross box maneuver :)  Said in jest but there is some truth to it.  So in this Masters sequence there are 3 optional cross box maneuvers.

If I understand your post, the "Top Hat from the Top" is to be used as a turnaround maneuver, so could be used to get to the "front" or "back" of a 2-dimensional box, so could be flown "sideways", like a Humptybump or "regular" Top Hat?
I any event, I believe this maneuver was called the "Reverse Top Hat" in the 1978-79 FAI section of the AMA Rules Book.  If so, what's old is new again...

If you have not opened the latest K-Factor yet, the 2020/21 proposed

(Thank you Derek for getting them posted)

Please take a look, fly them etc.  The sequence committee put a lot of
work into them to make sure that they flow well, are of the appropriate
level of difficulty and hopefully fun to fly.  This will be the first
set of sequences using the new K factor system.

Please provide any feedback to your district VP.  Please be specific so
any comments can be better collated for possible changes if needed.

Since adding new maneuvers not in the current NSRCA maneuver catalog was
an issue with the last set of sequences only one new maneuver was
requested and approved during this cycle.  This is the Top hat from the
top with cross box options turnaround in the Masters sequence.  All of
the other maneuvers in all sequences were taken from the current catalog.

We hope you enjoy flying them,

Stuart Chale
