But to answer @meyerweb's question

The color hints were one way to address the problems with linear gradients being ugly in many cases. They are based on gradients used [in Adobe products](https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/gradients.html).  The mid-point position is easy to represent and intuitive to adjust in a visual editor.

But as @svgeesus noted, the curves created by mid-point adjustments are less flexible than the cubic bezier curves used in the transition functions, because they are defined by one point, not two.  In particular, you can't create S-curve ease-in-out relationship.  And you definitely cannot create steps.  So I think there is a value in having both: the mid-points for their simplicity, and full transition functions for more control.
