I don't think you're quite getting what I'm saying.  Yes, you could
apply it to the root element, but what I'd rather do is apply it to the
element that actually represents where I want the image to display.
Basically, I want a type of background-attachment that allows me to use
background-position where 0, 0 is the top left of the document, but the
only part displayed is the part where the element intersects with the
image.  Basically, this would be to fixed what the new 'local' value is
to scroll.
