[webkit-dev] Adding Web Animations to WebCore

I don't think we should support this API in WebKit at this time, because:

* At least in its current form, it is overengineered and unusable. An animation API should focus on ease of use, not combining every conceivable animation concept ever invented.
* It hasn't even reached FPWD yet so it's not clear that the design is mature.
* I don't see any evidence of broad cross-vendor support for this direction (though there might be some that I overlooked).

We expect to be turning this define on for Chromium buildbots so there will be build and test coverage as the new functionality is added.
