Sounds like something worth discussing with IE devs about the feasibility in our implementation...

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.
