My idea, for what it's worth...

I kinda buy into the "negative pressure" idea that
another poster mentioned recently.  Ie., the sponge
is designed to counter the effect of gravity on the
ink flow  (also, to keep it from sloshing about.)

On that basis, I'd put the foam on the bottom of each
chamber, so that the ink has to flow through the
sponge on its way out.  The ink in the upper part
of the chamber can slosh all it wants, as long as
it doesn't slosh over into the next compartment,
or outside the cartridge.
