Hi Niklas and Lee.

In response to Olaf’s complaint[1] about allowing the trailing semicolon
in the @values attribute on animation elements, we were wondering if
this was necessary, or if we could revert that addition to leave such
content being non-conformant, especially given Ikivo has said they would
fix this in future versions of their authoring tool (IIRC).  Allowing
the trailing semicolon does, as Olaf mentions, conflict with SMIL &
other implementations and is inconsistent with other semicolon-separated
lists specified in animation attributes.

Thanks,

Cameron
