It's the first time I thought of it too.  The only diploid flattie I had bloom this year was 'Rhythm', and the pollen was dried up and the petals deformed (dry heat), so I don't think it was any good.  Anyway, I didn't do anything with it this year.
It'll be fun to see what comes of it.

Hi Dave,
I have Clematis, Rhythm and Little Freak. I didn't
think to cross them with one another. I will try it
and see if I can get pods. Last year I found pollen on
Rhythm, Clematis and Fran's Flattie. I crossed them
with Cybernet, a diploid broken color MTB. Rhythm and
Clematis pollen produced pods. Fran's Flattie pollen
might be sterile. But I will try crossing them with
each other and see if I can get any pods.
