[Bf-committers] Best place to apply a transform

I'm attempting to finish up the pinBone feature for the NLA. Thanks 
to help here from Ton and theeth, I have all the math working great. 
Each NLA strip is holding a 4x4 transform matrix that when applied to 
the armature will eliminate sliding during NLA animation. Is it 
enough to simply apply this matrix to the armature object's obmat? I 
don't want to actually alter the rot/loc/size values of the armature, 
as I don't want this transform to be key-framable, i.e. I don't want 
it's new position to be a "hard" position. It's calculated on-the-fly 
and should only count during display and render.
