You're exactly right.  The allocation in the Radio Regulations is to the 
amateur-satellite service with no limit on direction.

In bands like 1260-1270 MHz, you'll see a note specifying something like 
use in the Earth-to-space direction (i.e., uplink).

Fortunately, most of our amateur-satellite service bands have no such 

Folks really should read the Table of Frequency Allocations.  URL's already 
provided.  It's a terrific reference work.

As far as ARRL or IARU band plans go, they are "gentleman's agreements" 
with no particular legal standing.

Nevertheless, band plans go a long way to helping amateurs manage many, 
often incompatible, uses of available frequency allocations.  In point of 
fact, the band plans, when we observe them, help us to do the most with our 
frequencies while keeping governments off our backs.

Hope this helps.
