> Here's a very brief summary of the discussion about animations at the meeting today:
> 
> We are going to try to describe a single model for animation for Web content. The model will merge SVGA and CSS Animations functionality as much as possible.
> 
> The model can then be represented by two syntaxes - SVGA and CSS.
> 
> We'll also try to define an API for the model, exposed to JavaScript. This will allow things such as:
> 
> - querying the current animation state of an element
> - starting/stopping/pausing animations (scrubbing wasn't mentioned, but is important)
> - creating an animation and applying it to an element
> - possibly a way to define animation step timing to a document, similar to Mozilla's requestAnimationFrame
