Thanks!

We don't *need* to serialize every property value; the only real
requirement is that if the animation-name is a valid value for one of
the other sub-properties, that other sub-property must be included in
the serialization and must be placed before the animation-name.
(Similarly, if there's a non-default delay, the duration must be
serialized, and must be placed before it.)

I wouldn't mind requiring everything to be serialized, though.

I reported this, and suggested how we could test for it.
