Our implementation idea was that this makes the board file developer to specify knowlegde that the
drivers already could have and to reduce the risk of misconfiguration.

So we tried to model the invert property of the connector which is also backpropagated
to VENC.

But of course there are different ways of doing it and different priorities of contradicting

I also don't think that there is a need for runtime modifications, so your proposal
looks ok.

We will change it that way.

Do you see a chance to get it into the merge window of 3.13?
