To be clear, what they said is that they will not support *two
incompatible models* and at the time they saw more call for CSS
animations (for HTML/CSS), thus they would not ass SMIL animation
Thanks for the clarification.
The work on Web Animations, which harmonises the two models into two
expressions of one underlying model, removes that objection. I
discussed that with a Microsoft representative at the recent TPAC
meeting and he thought this made all the difference.
Good to hear!
So, never say never.
I never would.
