I agree with the points you make. However, applying multiple background 
images on a single element is something that is probably very complex to 
implement for browsers and if it is supposed to be used for rounded 
corners, it would be a hack as well, not?

I'm not sure what kind of syntax you had in mind, but there should be a 
way to control the z-index of each background image, it's position et 
cetera. These are a lot of properties and all apply to only a single 
element. I guess that will be quite hard to implement for UAs. 
Especially when they want it to render fast.
