not un-/anti-passive

In Naisek, there are some grammatical voice prefixes, including a causative
and two kinds of passive. Another one adds a dative subject, usually indicating
a perceiver, to verbs which otherwise have patientive subjects. I had first
mistakenly called it an antipassive prefix (I don't know why, except that it is
the opposite of a passive). This was hastily changed to unpassive when I
looked at it later. It turns out that unpassive is also already used for
something else, so I need a new term. Does anybody know?
