C'mon now, is that really what you think of me?  ;-)

I was only commenting on how backwards those attributes seem - most, if not 
all other tags default interpolate=yes, reparse=no. Because of that, and 
seeing how obvious an ITL tag belongs between those tags, your *last* 
assumption is that it needs interpolate=1 there. I'd always think I am 
mistyping, using it wrong, or missing a filter before thinking I would need 
interpolate=1. It was only till I looked at the defaults in the docs the 
other day that I thought, "How strange".
