Sorry it confused you, but two people I talked about this with
(fantasai and Ojan) were skeptical of the idea of doing something
"when an element generates a box" until I pointed out that we already
have this exact concept present in Animations.

So, my mentioning of Animations was an attempt to forestall any
similar objections.  It appears to have epicly failed, but there's no
way of knowing if there would have been just as much confusion of the
kind I'd already seen had I left it out.  Shrug.
