Am I right thinking that a ternary multiplexer is not effective in comparing with a binary multiplexer from number of elements view point? I mean it seems to me, that "number of elements ternary"/"number of elements of binary" > 1.5?

Yup, ternary multiplexers are expensive in terms of transistors and at the moment do not provide any gain over binary electronics. The best ternary full adder I saw uses 314 transistors, whereas binary adders use at least 10 times less.

At the same time the comparison ternary-binary is out of the scope of this article :)
