this could be handled very easily with CSS using animations and the nth-of-type selector.
Well, lots of things are easier if you don't need them to work on MSIE < version-after-next ;)
caniuse dot com says >= 9 can handle "-of-type" selectors, >= 10 animation. Opera 9.5 and up for selectors, which excludes all those robots professing to be Opera 8.90 or whatever it is they all say they are.
Has anyone ever met a -ms- prefix in the wild? Its use would require MSIE to admit that there exist other browsers, and that it's doing something those other browsers might not do. Generally it's not "-ms-style: suchandsuch" but "style-nobody-else-has-heard-of: suchandsuch".
I especially like the ominous "Partial support in Android browser refers to buggy behavior in different scenarios." That's just vague enough to strike terror into any programmer's heart.
