I've found with SVG Animation that non-integer iteration counts are 
pretty useful. For example, if you have motion on a loop path it's not 
uncommon to want to run the loop 1.5 times. repeatCount="1.5" is a lot 
simpler than using keyPoints, or end times etc. for that.

(Also, a lot of other features in SVG such as repeatDur assume you can 
do fractions of intervals. I suspect CSS will also need this eventually.)

I agree with Tab that if you allow non-integer iteration counts, you 
should allow values between 0 and 1.
