Here's a simple attempt at a first draft (browser implementors, please feel free to adjust):
1. If an element has a CSS animation on height and its height changes to `auto`, calculate the height that the element will have with `height: auto`, and remember the value as `targetValue`.
2. Start the CSS animation from the current height value to the `targetValue`. (Implemented e.g. by using `targetValue` as temporary override for height for the purposes of the CSS animation, or similar means.)
3. If the viewport size or other page elements change, and they would cause a change of the element height in case of `auto`, set that value as the new `targetValue`, and continue the animation from the current absolute height to the new `targetValue`. In other words, add an `onresize` event listener on the element and re-run from step 1.
4. Once the CSS animation finishes, height behaves like a normal `auto`, but the size change handler from step 3 stays in place, until height is no longer set to `auto`.

"height" in the description above may be replaced with width or any similar CSS property that can have a value of `auto` and can have CSS animations.
