The same limitation applies in Maya (you can do it, but it won't  
work... if you blend shape A to shape B and the vertex numbers don't  
match, you get unpredictable results).  Perhaps there could be a  
"nodes" modifier (that could then be edited) to insert into the  
existing node stack to get around this limitation.  That could provide  
a nice hybrid of nodes on top of the existing system.

It's great to hear that it's being considered at all, though.  I've  
been waiting a long time for that feature.
