I'm curious why active low/high is of any importance? That will only affect
the state numbering, but I fail to see any relevance in that numbering. It's
just numbers, no?

If all the pins are inverted (anything else seems very strange), just
reverse the order. I.e. for a 4-way mux, use 3, 2, 1, 0 instead of
0, 1, 2, 3.

Why not?
