So if I understand correctly you mean that the listener on
"WebKitTransitionEnd" will be called unexpectedly right? One solution
would be do not dispatch the event if it is prefixed so we match the
old behaviour.

In the case that a listener was attached to the "transitionend" event
then from your example it was never called as there was no unprefixed
transitions on the main element, it will be called now.

In any case as WebKit is unprefixing the transitions this example is
likely to not behave correctly as the prefixed transition will be
played on the element and the pseudo-element unprefixed transition
will be played.

Can you point me these examples?
