Lars, I agree with you. Having CSS animations is pretty cool - Its
very good to have other way to animate elements without using
Javascript or Flash - but I think they should be declared elsewhere,
not in the CSS as in "style".

IMHO it could be better if they can be included and declared something like:

<link href="anims.csa" rel="animation" type="text/csa" media="screen" />

I think having a different categorization will allow a better
implementation for controlling/stopping animations in the browser.

Just my opinion, don't take it too serious.

With the current idea, I wonder what is suppose to happen with the CSS
animations in media="print" ? does the browser would turn it off
automatically?
