[OpenSCAD] multmatrix expands the input matrix to 4x4?

What is the actual behavior of multmatrix()?
It appears that I can supply M, a list of lists such that the rows, M[i],
can be a list of any length, even zero. If len(M[i])<4 then M[i] is
expanded to have length 4. If len(M[i])>4 then the extra values are
ignored. Furthermore, len(M) can be anything. Unspecified values are
filled in to create an identity matrix, and extra ones are ignored. So for
example, multmatrix([]) will scale in the x direction by 3.
Is this a correct interpretation? Assuming I can rely on this behavior, I
can simplify code by not explicitly transforming 3x3 matrices into 4x4 ones.
