In the Mixtool plugin, please change the word "phase" to "polarity", the correct term to use when inverting a wave.

By all means YES! The difference between phase and polarity is like the difference between echo and reverb! Please use terminology that more closely describes what is really happening. In audio, phase is used primarily to describe a time shift comparing one wave form to another, whereas polarity is a reversal of the waveform with no time shift.
