:focus + on-entry eq. onfocus
:focus + on-exit  eq. onblur
:hover + on-entry eq. onmouseenter
:hover + on-exit  eq. onmouseleave

This seems an awful lot like events to me. The very fact that you 
proposed a property called "on" makes the thought not that far fetched, IMO.

Agreed. Like Don Quijote I have been trying to suggest that animations 
belong in the DOM for a while now...
