Re: [csswg-drafts] [web-animations-1] Should async playback methods return the `ready` Promise?

Yes, after I left the office on Friday I was thinking about this some more and came to the same conclusion that we should return the finished promise from `play()` and `reverse()`.

There aren't really any strong use cases for the `ready` promise. Like you said, it's mostly useful for synchronization. For example, if you start an animation you don't know the actual `startTime` until it finishes painting. So if you want to synchronize something with a newly-started animation you'd need to wait on `ready`.

I think my thinking was biased by the fact that I am writing so many web-platform-tests for this where we wait on `ready` to check values like `startTime` ― not a very typical use case!
