This 'transition' was a feature of the PDF Spec since 1.2, but the
spec is about the language and not about particular reader apps.
So I don't know if this matters.  AFAICT the header has no effect
on how Acrobat Reader displays stuff, but you could try changing it.

At a guess I would say: call setPageDuration for the span you want,
and set it
back to None afterwards.
