@svgeesus You skipped over the "It appears to be good enough for Photoshop" part of my quote. I'm definitely not against easing functions from a theoretical point of view! But the mid-point based approach does appear to work fine for existing Photoshop content, or at least did back when I made that comment. Has the situation changed?

I could also believe that Photoshop's interface makes it easier to guess-and-check gradient-midpoints and generate new ones, such that CSS aping the functionality is missing the usability. Is this the case?

The issue really is one of need. Do midpoints provide sufficient ability to do a "soft fade" gradient, or do authors need more power to achieve their goals? And would `<easing-function>` solve those goals well? So far I haven't seen an argument from an actual need. 

(Note that the original post made no mention of midpoints, because the proposal was buried in Images 4. We didn't move it to Images 3 and make it more visible until the next month. The thread kinda skipped over mention of midpoints to focus on discussing adding easing functions, so it's unclear whether midpoints serve @meyerweb's needs sufficiently.)
