    Yes, and then there's an alternate proposal using a slash.
    The point is that the value definition of 'transition' doesn't 
conform with the prose, which seems like a serious mistake to me.  It 
should be possible to write syntax that doesn't require the text, 
right?  All that's needed is to decide which pattern to support and 
then fix the syntax to match.
    I agree that the two shorthands should be consistent, of course!
