I know that getComputedStyle always includes all the computed properties of
the element, but if getComputedStyle also contains the result of the
animated properties, what's the point of getOverrideStyle? since
getOverrideStyle would just return the same property values that are in

The way I hope this works is that getComputedStyle contains the base values
of all the properties, and getOverrideStyle contains any animated property
values, but I need confirmation that this is how it works.
