In Yandex.browser we support SVG- and CSS-based animation. We're also  
interested in improving the capabilities of CSS-based animation to match  
what can already be done in SVG (which is really just SMIL) - we want to  
use this for our services, which are not signs as such.

In other words, the use cases seem to overlap and we explicitly want to  
have declarative (non-javascript) animation. We're currently looking at  
SMIL as the most obvious source, and perhaps moving the syntax into CSS,  
largely for operational reasons - we use BEM [1] for a lot of our  
development and a lot of the animation we want would fit more logically in  
the styling components than having to be written in script as we do today.
