The output value is flat along an interval. You control the number of intervals and whether or not the change in output value happens at the start or the end. There are some shorthands, step-start and step-end, which provide the common case - a single discrete change in output.

This is an extremely helpful property for authors, who otherwise would have had to set the property values for the beginning and end of animations via script.

Sounds good!
