[GraphQL] Multiple aliases for single matrix field #5008

It doesn't seem like its currently possible to query the same matrix field multiple times (with different aliases) for different block types. I want to be able to do something like this in order to group blocks by their type:

alias1: matrixFieldHandle(type:"blockType1Handle") {
  ...on matrixFieldHandle_blockType1Handle_BlockType {

alias2: matrixFieldHandle(type:"blockType2Handle") {
  ...on matrixFieldHandle_blockType2Handle_BlockType {

When I try this, only the last alias (alias2 here) listed gets populated with data and any preceding aliases (just alias1 here) are an array containing a single empty object. If I switch the order and put alias2 first, then it's the array/empty object and alias1 gets populated properly with data. I'm not sure if this is a bug?

If I remove the type parameters, each alias gets all the matrix blocks from the field, but since some don't match the fragment, I get an array of mostly empty objects. The ones that do match have all the correct data though.
