Always love seeing problems solved in CSS but, certainly in this case, it's just not usable in the real world since css transitions are not supported in IE9 and below.. there are jQuery fall backs, but that kinda defeats the object.
Yeah as I said in my post CSS3 does have its problems. I still use it though, if they are inIE8 then they will still see the div get bigger, just not the animation. If they want to run outdated browsers/software then they cant expect the full experience IMO.
However, if I had to support older browsers then I'd definitely use your method

I'd say forget the past and look at the future, so use CSS3 instead of jQuery if possible ^^
The more developers/designers push for it, the quicker the new standards come out and get used more widely.
