I'm not too averse to slightly more complex rules for when things can be interpolated. The thing to bear in mind is that at some shiny point in the future, the specs should annotate each CSS property with information about whether they are animatable. If you cast yourself into the future and imagine writing the prose for this, simpler rules about when gradients interpolate will be easier to explain than more complex ones.
