"1. The blend CAGR cannot be as large as the largest component CAGR nor
can it be less than the smallest CAGR component of the blend."

How tragic.

Your very first assertion, and yet I fail to agree.

In theory, a blend could exceed the CAGR of all its constituents. Not
saying I've seen it, but please be more careful in what you assert.

Period  Screen 1  Screen 2  Blend
1       20%        0%        10%
2        0%       20%        10%

See?

In cagr, a geometric value, smoothness of returns is what wins.
