Yup, I have a plan for making paint servers usable as CSS <image>s,
and conversely for making CSS <image>s usable as SVG paint servers,
based on experimental work by roc.  Merging the two into a single
cross-language concept is surprisingly easy, and makes me happy.

I'm happy for the first part to live in the CSS Image Values spec, but
I'm not sure where to put the second part.  It seems like SVG would be
a better place to define it.
