How about using a descriptor such as "Inverted" or "Retrograde" for methods
for which the place notation is the reverse of that for another method? For
example, the principle Quasar Maximus could be called Retrograde Orion
Maximus (Orion Maximus being the first half lead of Orion Surprise Maximus).
Clearly it would be more sensible to call such methods "Reverse" and use
"Inverted" for what is currently called "Reverse", but perhaps that would be
a step too far for most ringers!
