We didn't see as much need for a transitionStart event. Can you think  
of places where you need it because the functionality isn't available  
elsewhere? For example, if you are changing property values via JS  
you're already in a better place to set up the transition.

Also, we wanted to make it more likely that pages with transitions  
fall back gracefully on older browsers. Having the ability to process  
an event before a transition makes this less likely.
