Oh, this seems to have been a browser thing, not a thing of the specs, as 
some people pointed out to me...

And the other issue is handled somewhat in CSS3 Backgrounds, I believe. 
Stretching in just one direction or relative to not the containing element 
but to the graphics in question is missing, but otherwise it covers it 
better than anything I could think of.
