It fails gracefully, as when you specify a stand-in color, that css code  
is ignored by older browsers, which can earlier be fed the proper  
background, I'm giving the example again, just in case.

background: red;
background: transparent standincolor(red) url(foo.png);

Is something wrong with this? Or are you for:
background: red;
background: red onbgimageload(transparent) url(foo.png);

Or you are not for any of these solutions? I would like to hear why this  
wouldn't degrade gracefully.
