That is a very interesting deck; I plan to read the book, but it will take me a while...

I rather agree with you here - I was staying quiet as I know less than you - but I couldn'  see how the various hybrids - interesting though they are as images - relate to tarot at all. I think this world work better as an oracle.

The Colquhoun is rather a special case, but the other three you link to do all fit to a degree with tarot as I understand it. The Transparent in particular - the creation process is detailed on line and Emily certainly had traditional associations in mind and they can be seen in the individual cards - but the combinations add layers of meaning. This doesn't happen for me with your hybrid combinations - I'm sorry.
