The transition is between two underlying values.  The purpose of the
transitions specification is to cause changes to computed style that
occur for other reasons to transition gradually.  Examples of such
changes include changes to what selectors match an element (e.g.,
when an element begins or ends matching :hover) or changes to an
element's style attribute.
