It's the first time in a while I hear something about css-animations editing called 'fast' *cough*

Btw, the latest update is here https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/csswg/rev/406b08f4fcbc

It adds a clarification at the end of that paragraph following a question from Simon. Namely, if your @keyframes rule was empty and you later add style rules in it, does it cause the animation to start from the beginning? The answer was no i.e. no different from programmatically adding/remove style rules from any other @keyframes rule -> nothing gets restarted. (Though a running animation may be impacted). You OK with that?

Good question. That's definitely something to think about but it also sounds like a significant rewrite. Not that the current prose is awesome but I'm not going to embark on that without input from David and others, including about whether they think it's something we want to do.
