Plotly.animate doesn't unset attributes

See original GitHub issue

Here’s a codepen that illustrates the issue.

I expected that:

    Plotly.animate(gd, {
        traces: [0],
        data: [{
            "marker.opacity": null
    }, {
        transition: {
            duration: 500        

would unset `[0].marker.opacity.

It doesn’t break anything for me at the moment. I’ve only noticed that Plotly.validate(, gd.layout) would return an error.

@n-riesco @rreusser this situation is similar to I have no strong opinion here to be honest. I can think of situation where pruning make sense and others that don’t. Better yet, maybe as @n-riesco suggested yesterday we should expose some .getAttribute method on Plotly where it would be easier to guarantee the result as opposed to making users dig into / gd._fullData etc …

Moreover, @n-riesco’s point about Plotly.validate is fair. Maybe we should make Plotly.validate skip keys linked to nulls entirely.
