Hi list,

The current ED defines the behavior of animations when setting
animation-play-state: paused to be: "A paused animation will continue to
display the current value of the animation in a static state, as if the
time of the animation is constant."

It seems likely that this is intended to be extended to animations that
start paused - that is, animations that start paused should display the
value at (- animation-delay). This isn't completely clear from the current
wording, however, and neither Chrome nor Firefox currently exhibit this

What is the intended behavior? Should we reword the specification to
clarify this?
