Either way is fine with me. The IN/OUT/GND naming is a little odd, but
it's not only Rohm's idea. E.g., ON Semi have it too. They show a sense
of humor by using B/C/E with the transisator symbol, and IN/OUT/GND
with the inverter symbol :-) NXP use B/C/E. How unimaginative :-)

Maybe the IN/OUT/GND comes from marketing realizing that digital
engineers are afraid of anything analog and thus they covered up those
scary B/C/E pins ;-)
