Transplication as Implication

In his contribution on partial logic to the Handbook of Philosophical Logic, Stephen Blamey introduces a ‘value gap introducing’ connective named ‘transplication’ to the standard 3-valued partial logic, the Strong Kleene logic. Blamey suggests the possibility of reading the transplication connective as a type of conditional. I was interested to see how the transplication connective fares as a conditional by testing it against a list of inferences concerning conditionals.

Here is the investigation: Transplication as Implication

I have not come across much material concerning transplication. Does anyone else have any other references or ideas?
