You're complicating the rules by doing this. If I have:

rotate(...) scale(...) translate(...)
scale(...) rotate(...) translate(...)

Do you do two separate matrix animations? Taking that to its logical conclusion, you could end up doing a dozen expensive matrix animations for a long list of unmatched primitives.

Or do you combine unmatching primitives next to each other? That might be a better approach, but it might get confusing for long primitive lists.

We also talked about adding an identity() primitive to make it easier to match up primitives. Identity() would match a primitive of any type. Was that ever done?
