Hi @SetTrend.  I think everyone in the working group agrees with you that this _should_ be possible. The problem is that there are a lot of little details that still need to be sorted out.

The relevant specification is [CSS Images Level 4](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-images-4/#interpolating-gradients).  It was initially described in Level 3, but got pushed back because browser implementations weren't always consistent. (For a while, Chrome also supported some gradient animations.)  Also, the current definition relies on falling back to `cross-fade()` animations if the gradients don't match up nicely, and no browsers yet support `cross-fade()`. 

So, what can you do?

- Take a look at the current spec text & file issues if you have any suggestions or concerns.
- File or upvote issues on the browser engines asking them to implement experimental versions of gradient interpolation as defined in CSS Images 4, so that we can get feedback and figure out the missing spec details.
