Yes, if it is common to not define transition-property and rely on its initial value of 'all' then this could cause some awkward surprises. We'd have to redefine 'all' to mean 'all properties with interpolable values' which does sound awkward. 

At the same time, if animating all values is a good thing for animations it also seems awkward to arbitrarily prevent it in transitions. Or maybe animations are the fallback in this case?
