You are right, "theoretically" any inversions could be used, but in
theory, you could also use 4-octave-wide inversions, and this would be
absurd, because few instruments can play on 4 octaves. I think there is
a glitch in Lilypond's inversions, but I may be proven wrong. If so,
there should be a warning in the documentation.

Moreover, imho, most piano composers would take my definition, not
Lilypond's, because it is natural on a piano not to go beyond one octave
for one hand. If I want <c/e> on the right hand, I don't want it to be
spread across 2 octaves.

Thank you for your useful image!
