I had made a presentation to the CSS working group a while back about a proposed drop-shadow property that could act on just borders, just backgrounds, just contents, or a combination of these as either individual items or composited together. It was the same meeting where we discussed filters for the first time (I think), and it was suggested that SVG filters would be the best shot for that sort of thing.
