Once again, the WG has resolved to allow discrete value to animate at the half-way point of a timing function curve. Resolved means it will be required for browsers to do this when the current Transition and Animations specs reach Recommendation i.e. it will be 'needed' in order to conform. Obviously no browser implements this *yet* because this behavior wasn't required when they implemented a previous version of the current spec. The specs will be updated; the browsers will update their code to match. There is no chicken and egg issue here. 

What is *not* going to happen at this time is the ability to interpolate between code points e.g. animating from 'A' to 'Z' through B, C, D etc. by only specifying the start/end values of the character range.
