In general, the list includes everything that was "mature" at the time
Transitions was created.  We now have an "Animatable" line in the
propdef tables in our spec template, so all CSS3 specs should include
their animation information as part of their property descriptions,
and the list in Transitions can just deal with 2.1 properties.
