[css-ui] dynamic effects

Creating dropdown menu's with CSS can give nice effects [1], but the 
things that can be achieved with JavaScript look definitely better [2]. 
It would be nice if a future version of css-ui (CSS 4?) defines these 
effects so they can be created easily, without having to script a lot.

I think it wouldn't be that hard to define such a model. Only some extra 
properties would be needed. Normally, applying 'display:block' to an 
element on ':hover' makes it visisble at the time you go over the 
element using your mouse. Using a couple of extra properties you can 
totally define from where the element appears, what speed it will have. 
If it starts slow and ends fast or the other way around.
