Re: [css-animations] Should really a reversed animation use the reversed timing function?

Yes, it's not a truly reversed animation. But, shouldn't the question be
what kind of reversal is more useful rather than sticking to the definition
of the word "reversed".

Whenever I've needed a reversed animation, what I really look for is the
same animation but in the opposite direction, not an exact reversed, so I
always end up using ease-in-out as the timing function because it plays the
same forward and backwards.
If I use any non-symmetric timing function, I get an undesired result.

May be there should be a way to specify what kind of reversal is desired.

Interesting, this frames function seems a much more intuitive way for a
stepping transition between keyframes. It would makes things much easier.
