In theory they could follow the animation model of enumerations that the CSS WG agreed on in Lyon. (Every time the transition function crosses 0.5 on output percentage, the value flips to either from- or to-reference depending on the derivation of the transition function.)

I assume that it does not necessarily produce meaningful results, just like interpolation between matrix items on CSS transforms. Does anyone have experience on that?

Of course the problem is also how to represent intermediate results in CSS OM. We do not have a generic color-matrix() function with 20 entries yet.
