There is one change I would not mind: let A * M be undefined if A is an ndarray and M is a NumPy matrix.

What about the other binary ops? I would say, matrix goes with matrix, array with array, never the two shall meet unless you explicitly coerce. The ability to mix the two in a single expression does more harm than good, IMHO.
I would be fine with this. I mentioned ``*`` explicitly, because it is the dangerous one (most likely to cause surprises).
Since M.A gives the array representation of the matrix M, explicit "coercion" is almost costless.
