This use case of wanting to start something mid-way through the path 
comes up reasonably often, particularly with paths that form a loop.

In Web Animations we've added an 'iteration start' parameter for 
this.[1] If you want to start half-way through the loop, you set 
iterationStart to 0.5.

The intention is to expose this to SVG syntax too when we come to define 
the mapping.

Best regards,

Brian
