Hmm… invertible matrices are actually pretty important. It’s a bit surprising how many arguments reduce to “k, I’ll prove this for invertible matrices, and these are Zariski-dense in the set of all matrices, so the general case follows”. I’ll probably write more on this later once I start seriously preparing for Lie Groups.
