Well, infixes would still be agglutinating, I believe. I don't know what you'd call it if it used mutations. I'd probably just call it a kind of agglutinating, just with the morpheme being an abstraction like "plus voicing" or "lenition" and the like, rather than a phonetic entity like /ta/. -- "There's no such thing as 'cool'.
