The browser is in control of the client's computing resources,
compositing managing, window rendition, realtime.  If it (or the user
settings controlling it) or the page description language does not
consider animating changes a good idea, the web page author is not
really in a position to know better.

The user has nothing to gain from every web page inventing its own
human-computer interface.  The whole point of HTML is to package content
in a way where the rendition is matched to the platform's capabilities.
