Here's my personal (I insist: personal) take about your proposals, from
a pure CSS p.o.v.:
1. transformations change nothing in the behaviour or semantics of an
element, it's strictly about rendering effects : in scope
2. transitions are even deeper than rendering, they affect the
way a property value is applied to an element : in scope
3. animations are just a way to apply a set or continuum of various
property values to an element : in scope
4. CSS Media Queries extensions ; of course in scope
That said, I am not saying anything about the solutions you chose, I am
just saying I have the personal feeling it's perfectly normal to ask the
CSS WG to deal with your proposals.
As a web author, I want these features and I
want them as simple to edit
as possible. As a standards guy, I want to make sure (a) we're not
reinventing the wheel (b) we're not going to neglect the HUGE
experience other W3C WGs have on these topics  (c) it's intuitive
and simple enough so web authors can edit w/o having to hire an expert
to understand the spec. Point (c) is in my humble opinion already
 for instance on transition collisions...
