Very interesting.

If we are opening the door for alternative matrix interpolation behaviors,
then I'd also like us to consider falling back to a 50% flip when
attempting to interpolate matrices or mis-matched transform lists.

Just like the current matrix behavior, this won't match author
expectations. Unlike the current matrix behavior, the author has a
reasonably good chance of working out why.
