Hi David,

I’m not sure what definition we’d use for motion & scaling beyond the dictionary ones?

  *   Motion: the action or process of moving or of changing place or position; movement.
  *   Scaling: the [change of] size or extent of something especially in comparison to something else
  *   (From CSS docs) Scaling: An increase or decrease in size.

For motion the dictionary definition is it, scaling less so. Would “sizing” work better than scaling?

“For non-essential motion or sizing animations triggered by a user action…”

Would that negate the need for a definition?



From: David MacDonald

I support the new wording, with a definition for motion and scaling
