Percentage handling (including for circle radius) is defined in the first
paragraph of section 3.0. That paragraph also says that other
specifications can define the relevant box for their use of basic-shapes.

You can get the effect you describe using farthest-side for a circle.
Animations should run on the used dimensions of the shapes.

Yes! Thanks. I've updated that section. It now reads:

For interpolating between two shapes that are type inset-rectangle,
ellipse or circle

- Replace each inset-rectangle with a temporary inset-rectangle with
offsets relative to the margin-box.

- Replace each circle and ellipse with a temporary inset-rectangle with
offsets relative to the margin-box, and <border-radius> values to make the
inset-rectangle equivalent to the original circle or ellipse

- Interpolate between each value of the temporary inset-rectangles.

If both basic shapes are of type polygon and if both polygons have the
same number of vertices:

- If the polygons use a different relevant box, replace one of the
polygons with a temporary equivalent polygon that uses the relevant box of
the other.

- Interpolate between each value.

In all other cases:

- No interpolation is specified.
