```Hi Stéphane,
what you have in mind is LINEAR interpolation. This can be done giving
the option InterpolationOrder ->1. Then you get 5/3. However, if the
interpolation order is higher, points farther away will have an effect.
To guard against unexpected surprises, it is generally safe to use a low
interpolation order.

sincerely, Daniel
