It seems to me that the WebKit proposal is addressing a few specific  
issues. Namely hardware for which supporting 3D transforms or even 2D  
transforms is not feasible, static media which will not do animations or  
transitions, while you are proposing feature sniffing which has been  
rejected for several years now and is always propposed as some sort of  
technical solution without detailed explanation of why it is needed, how  
it is going to be trusted/useful, and what the backwards compatibility  
story will be.
