No, I want to specify the animation (eg duration plus distance) with
concise and simple code and leave the motion resolution (eg fps) to
the player, I can not know about the capabilities of the environment
in which the animation is played.

It's different, there seems to be a misunderstanding.

Yes, that's one way.

In your code the frame rate is set in stone, if the implementation
plays the animation with a different or variable resolution (frame
rate) then it's not doing what it was told by the code.
