That is exactly why events in CSS are here for. I am sorry i have not 
explained this well, but it's possible with that. If the script taking 
care of animations, transitions or whatever are with the main 
"behavioral" script (as it is the case right now, since there is no way 
to separate them), then there is no way for the UA to understand wich 
script does what. If you allow to put script in CSS, then the user agent 
can just have a "disable scripts defined in CSS" option, that will just 
do what you want.
