Implementing events like that should be pretty trivial and allows authors  
to innovate themselves without having to wait for browser vendors to  
implement everything they might ever want in CSS.

The use cases might be catered for by something like XBL, but I don't seen  
anything inherently harmful in supporting events that indicate the  
transition between presentation media.
