Yes, at the time we said, "Surely no one will ever mint a CSS property
 as generic as 'offset'". 😬 (There was even a spec issue about this 
contemplating using `keyframeOffset` instead but that proved to 
verbose for a commonly-used feature.)
I still think that we should not have renamed CSS motion properties 
(since a memorable name is better than an accurate one) but I think 
that ship has sailed. In Web Animation's we'll probably just add a 
mapping for `cssOffset` to `offset` like we have for `cssFloat` . 
Fortunately, you'll normally want to animate `offsetPoistion` rather 
than the `offset` shorthand so this shouldn't crop up too often.
