This suggests that you think site authors are going to be the ones using this property. I don't see why they would, tho. Gifs are generally just fine to upload alongside any other images.

The need to stop/start a gif is either a per-user thing which should apply to *all* sites (and thus should be a browser setting), or should just generally be a functionality applied to all gifs for all users. I'm not seeing the use-case for an individual site author to need to turn on this functionality.
