I would think that deliberate design (intelligent or not) would produce way more copying from one "lineage" into another than what is seen in biology.

But maybe that's just me?

It's not just you.  Look at designed animals: unicorns, dragons, pegasi and all the other fantasy animals humans have designed.  Mostly they are a mixture of parts taken from different lineages.  Avian wings on a horse makes a pegasus.  Bat wings on a big lizard make a western dragon.

The norm for a designed animal is to have way more cross-lineage copying than an evolved animal.
