Looking around the web, you can easily see that this is a constant 
problem for developers. Velocity.js even notes this specific missing 
feature in its first paragraph of why it exists 
(https://fabric.io/blog/introducing-the-velocityreact-library). I can 
probably give a ton of references (on request) of developers rendering
 an element, measuring it, setting it's height to 0 then animating to 
that specific height. Even JQueryUI does a similar measurement 
technique just to get this to work and it's been around for almost a 
decade now.

What can we do as the larger software development community to 
petition this change and make sure it gets in on the next iteration?

Do we need to have more people come here and upvote this bug? Do we 
need to email a specific individual? Let us know so we can let you 
know what we need most.
