Very smart workaround, and it's actually working.
I have a working example here (webkit based browser required):

The problem with your solution is that you can't set an infinite repeat and
repeating the animation cycle is very ugly (copying the keyframe
declarations in the animation property).

I think the stepwise timing functions would be the real solution to this
problem (like Simon mentioned).
