Hi, all.

I am pretty excited about the new border-image in CSS3. Reading through
the Working Draft looks like it only works for solid colors in both, the
outer and inner background. If either background is defined as
"background: uri('file.png')", there would be a need for transparency in
the border images, but how to tell the user agent if the transparency
belongs to which background?

Also, if both backgrounds are uri('outer.png') and uri('inner.png'), how
would the user agent know what pixels of the image should be
outer-transparent and which ones should be inner-transparent?
