It  is not possible to specify just a subset of parameters in a 
keyframe. All values must be filled in.

That seems to be wrong. You can observe the same with coordinates of a 
mask point: The point is interpolated, but the coordinates displayed in 
the GUI always remain the same. The value and feather value are 
interpolated as well, but the interpolated numbers *are* displayed.

That would also be my preference.
