On one hand, yes I suppose that’s a nice idea as well, on the other 
hand, would it really be useful to have the ability to delay an 
animation, and wouldn’t it be something for a different language (e.g. 

Animate-motion is useful for various different effects, if everything 
animates linearly it’s a bit boring :). Motion may not be the correct 
term, maybe scale is better.

The idea is that the properties are evaluated like regular CSS 
properties, and when the properties that are currently set in 
animate-properties change because different styling is applied (e.g. due 
to :hover or a different class set by script), the CSS will animate them 
to their final position instead of change them directly.

These properties can then change on :hover, but of course the animation 
properties themselves can also be changed to achieve different effects 
when one hovers and ‘un-hovers’.
