 This is an interesting feature and I was impressed by potential I saw
 in the demos on the blog.

 How do CSS Transitions allow me to subscribe to an event?

 For example, if I want to have a calendar widget's show() trigger an
 animation of an element, I can build an animation object (hand
 rolled), and then subscribe to Calendar's show, calling
 animation.start().

 It seems that this is a limitation of CSS Transitions. I'd like to
 have at least some sort of way to get a transition object that has all
 of start(), pause, seekTo, as well as the properties of time,
 transition/easing algorithm, et c.

 The WHATWG seems to be more receptive to ideas than the other w3c
 groups. I wish they had a CSS module or something.
