If it helps, we can rename RecursionLimiter to CallDepthLimiter :)

There is no way this will ever happen. It will cause a nightmare of
problems since Trigger Actions can trigger any actions at all. 

If you really feel the need for Animation, then write a new Trait that
does Animation specifically.  It would know about the image sequence and
the timings and can start a thread to display them using a proper
Animator timer. That would be a much better solution.
