We already have declarative means for animations and transition effects
in SMIL and proposals like http://www.w3.org/Submission/xml-timing/ and
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/xbl/xbl2.html that cover related issues.
It would be best if you could explain in detail why these do not provide
adequate syntax or semantics and why a CSS-based solution would, how the
proposed solution interacts with those other facilities, why it would be
sufficient to provide to functionality provided by your proposal and
other problems (e.g., runtime synchronization of media embedded via CSS)
do not need to be addressed, and how important you think this problem is
relative to problems http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/current-work the CSS WG
is already trying to tackle.
