Transmog: Fist weapons...what do?

General Discussion
My question/sentiment is basically this:

Will I be able to use Main-hand fist weapons to change the appearance of my off-hand? There are quite a few Main hand models that don't have a matching off-hand but look very cool. So, I pose this question.
I'd assume so, since they're of the same weapon type.
The first ones that comes to mind for me is The Hand of Nerub and Mounting Vengeance
Fist of the Deity would be awesome in both hands, if it's possible.
Transmogrification will also have restrictions for main-hand, off-hand, and one-hand. So you can't transmogrify Fist of the Deity onto an off-hand or one-hand weapon.
Sadly there aren't enough fist weapons to change anyhow. It seems to be all axes currently.
Well I hope this is an exception. I know off-hands like books and stuff should be different but Fist offhands are kinda silly.
I feel for raiding rogues. There are no fist weapons at the current tier and the previous tier's fist weapons no one would be seen dead wielding. I was hoping that we could transmogrify our daggers into fist weapons so I could wield Calamity's Grasp again. Though I don't hold out much hope.
If you're looking for a nice set: Talon of the Phoenix Claw of the Phoenix.

Though I imagine the actual challenge would be finding a level appropriate set to mog.

The problem is that virtually all fist weapons (save for the generic brass knuckle-style ones) use different models for the main hand and off hand. The game doesn't just flip the graphic depending on which hand the weapon is in, it has completely separate models for each hand.

In other words, if you took a main hand fist weapon and mogged it onto your off hand fist weapon, your new off hand would still be oriented as if you were holding it in your main. Calamity's Grasp, for example, would be slice-and-dicing your armpit while you idled.
