That would be handy. The SVG  primer [1] has several examples that deal with
this issue, but figuring out how to do them was not intuitive, and
generalizing to broader situations left me a bit puzzled as I recall.

Cheers

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
