The problem is that technically speaking, per the definition of the 
override style sheet in the CSSOM specs, this should trigger animations 
as you do it.

I think the only sane way to proceed, for what it's worth, is to assume 
that any time SMIL talks about the "override stylesheet" it doesn't mean 
the CSSOM concept of override stylesheet but rather some magical thing 
that affects computed values in a special way and doesn't affect 
specified values at all.  Or something.
