In the current specification you can control padding and margin and
just about every other attribute by going clockwise from the top.

..example {
padding: top right bottom left;
border: top right bottom left;

It makes sense to me to make the background image attribute operate in
the same way.

..suggestion {
background: top right bottom left;

The biggest issue is that the "background" attribute currently
controls alot more then just the image that is used, you also control
position and a few other properties.  The multiple background image
property would need to be seperated from the other background
properties. Then how would you deal with the placement inside of that
property as well?
