The handedness is the same as that of your coordinate system. If you
assume that ODE is left-handed, all quantities will be left-handed. If
you assume that ODE is right-handed, then all quantities will be
right-handed. ODE just does math; it doesn't interpret the numbers in a
reference frame.
Given that ODE is handedness neutral, the handedness then comes from
your interpretation. It may just be that the interpretation is the angle
from body 2 to body 1.
