IIRC in Batik I implemented getting of underlying CSS values by removing
the animated property from the override style sheet, getting the
computed value, then re-adding the property to the override style sheet.
So I’d agree, the model’s not perfect.

I wonder if other implementations ignore that and just do something
special in the cascade instead of messing with the override style?
