Did you try it with three independent animations with long durations?
If 'from' and 'to' have the same value for a property, there should be
no continuous change. The second and third animation can be
delayed to use them as steps. Because CSS animations are never
additive, the later animation simply replaces all earlier.
If the durations are pretty long (years), this approximates a final
frozen state.
Well, all this is much more simpler with SVG/SMIL animation, as
you can image. For several things this CSS animation is too simple
and too vague - anyway with some creativity and some workarounds
one can simulate a lot (one can note with SMIL directly), if precision,
simplicity and elegance is not so important ...
