It doesn't do much at the moment but will eventually allow you to query for all the running animations, pause and scrub the timeline, and create keyframes without going through the CSS OM (yuck!). It also needs to play nicely with the new requestAnimationFrame method.
> Why a feature? Since it is a work-in-progress and does not have an official standard behind it (we plan to submit it once baked), it would be bad if official browser releases exposed something that people might start to use or test for. This allows an implementation to hide the DOM API. The actual implementation is still present.
