Yeah, you have a point:
IF you could stand still, you would see light from behind as
blue-shifted, precisely the flip side of gravitational redshifting
for distant observers. However, if you were traveling on a free-fall
geodesic, you would see no blueshift from light directly behind,
because you and it would be in the same inertial reference frame.
