Sure, why not.
I have thought up other transforms, but we can call this one Quet's 
transform involving permutations, or something.

I have a conjecture for that I am having trouble solving myself.

If your start sequence is:

1, 1, 1, 2, 1, 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 1, 6,...

([1,m] repeated),

then does the "Quet transform" yield

1, 1, 1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 1, 3, 4, 1, 4, 5, 1, 5,

([m,1,m] repeated)?

(So we have a sequence where the 1's occurring every 2 terms being 
transformed (maybe) into a sequence where the 1's occur every 3 terms.)
