[css3-animations] multiple occurrences of the same 'animation-name'

I think http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-animations/ doesn't say what
happens for this testcase:

  @keyframes bounce { from { margin-left: 0px } to { margin-left: 100px } }
  p { animation: bounce 1s linear, bounce 3s linear }

In particular, it doesn't say which of these two animations
overrides the other.  This is due to a quirk in wording here:

  # If at one point in time there are multiple animations
  # specifying behavior for the same property, the animation whose
  # name occurs last in the value of ‘animation-name’ will override
  # the other animations at that point. 
   -- http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-animations/#animations

Since "the animation whose name occurs last in the value of
'animation-name'" doesn't disambiguate the two, since they have the
same name.

I think dropping the "whose name" would probably make it correct,
but it might be worth making things a little clearer than that.
