The only reason I can see is for the "borders" of an area. However, we 
could use 'border-image' or a similar property to do that.

You could also use '::before' and '::after', though some W3C Members 
think you are abusing the selectors if you use them for a top and bottom 
background image.

I don't really see a reason to introduce this new feature.
