There's a problem linking animations with transitions that hasn't been mentioned yet. What do you expect to happen in this case:

.button {
  left: 100px;
  transition: left 1s play(bounce 1s);
}

.button:hover {
  left: 100px;
}

Here, left isn't changing on :hover, so the transition wouldn't run, and thus nor would the bounce animation. Is that what you want?

Controllable animations are still desired for this use case.
