Hi Andrey,

you should look at the discussion starting with this message:  
<http://www.w3.org/mid/85F5A76F-421F-44AB-87D3-2B54961C963B@w3.org>

Complex or very wide gradients might be a real issue by making it much  
harder to read, but slight gradients are probably not a problem in  
themselves.

cheers
