The only problem is that gradients aren't that simple. Authors are  
going to want to control the following:

- Color 1
- Color 2
- Direction
- Shape
- Length of color 1 before it starts gradiating toward color 2
- Length of color 2 before it starts gradiating toward color 1
- Length of color 1's gradiation toward color 2
- Length of color 2's gradiation toward color 1

If authors want to include something this complex, they should learn  
SVG. Don't forget: by the time CSS 3 gets implemented, this will be a  
whole lot easier to do with SVG authoring tools than it is now.
