This extra note in the draft gives me the shivers! Backround images should  
indeed be clipped by the border. Not clipping them would be another type  
of design that we would rarely need. Not clipping them will be like saying  
"Do not use background images when the border corners are round".

But, if one desperately needs his background image to stick from round  
corners, he could use ::outside *if ::outside is rendered in the  
background of the div it is wrapping and not just outside, but this was  
not made clear in the spec.*

Or there could be an extra setting in background-image like NoClipByBorder:
background-image: url(nicebg.png) noclipbyborder;
