Install HS2xx switches upside down?

Model: HS200  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

Installing any of the smart switches according to the directions in a multi-gang box with other Decora switches leaves one with an installation that looks odd. The normal Decora swtiches in their off state have the paddle protruding from the top of the switch (off position, bottom of the paddle is in; on position, the top of the paddle is in).  The HS-200 switch (and others) has the bottom of the paddle protruding out in both on and off states.

 

Is it OK to install the HS200 upside down so that all of the switches in a multi-gang installation have the same paddle profile when all are in the off (or on) state?

 

Perhaps getting a little retentive here, but just thought I'd ask.

Think of it this way, the logic/electronics of the switch are always on, so bottom out.
