I strongly agree.  I don't think it's worthwhile to do any more with
animation synchronization in CSS than we already do.  More complex
synch cases should be done in JS with an API built for that purpose,
that lets you explicitly chain animations end-to-end, make multiple
animations start at the same time, etc.
