Do you mean that the transition property doesn't necessarily have to "suddenly" apply, because it might have applied before also, to the previous state? I'll concede that; I just meant that you use the transition values from the rule for the state you are in, and you want to know them at the same time you do for any other properties in the rule: when the rule first takes effect.
