Interesting question.

Mix-and-match Dyna models sound fun and easy to play with, like something I could use without much effort to make a bunch of things quickly, and see if I come up with anything useful.

Inter-compatibility with all Dyna models sounds really technical, like something I'm going to need to put some serious effort into, and probably not get the results I want anyway.

You may be loath to use the idiom, but will your audience be loath to see it?

Cheers!
-Greg
