Oh my gosh, the entire www has been wrong all this time!

On a more serious note, animations have been well defined in the CSS
standard for years[1], as well as through very common JS libraries[2],
SVG animations[3], the HTML Canvas, etc.

All of these are part of the web stack of every graphical web browser
out there, I didn't invent anything here.

Come on, you very well know that HTML is about the content. Formatting,
appearance, animations and such should be handled in CSS, JS, etc.
