Re: [csswg-drafts] [web-animations-1] Should setting the startTime of a play-pending animation to `null` have side effects?

Discussed this yesterday with @graouts @stephenmcgruer @flackr and agreed that we should go with (b), i.e. no change to the spec.

Part of the reasoning is that this not only makes it easy to synchronously pause without having to check the pending state, but it is also consistent with the fact that setting the `startTime` always finishes a pending-play, regardless of whether or not the value you set is `null`.

Firefox will be updated in [Mozilla bug 1478213](https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1478213) where I will also add a test for this.
