I'm been visiting the Sydney office all week to discuss CSS
extensibility, we discussed this a few days ago. Listening for
property changes doesn't seem to be hard.  Doing it directly through
O.o might be, but the system already listens for computed value
changes in order to start transitions; checking for listeners and
queueing a task to call them wouldn't be expensive.
