As a designer:
rounded corners should not be in css as css is a positioning tool rather
than a drawing-tool. Besides rounded corners are just a fashion-fad that
could be traded in for anything at anytime.

There is a lot to be said for diagonal border segments. They will be
(mis/ab)used to create free-flowing text along photographs. Therefor a
box-description by co-ordinates would suit that purpose better, would
also allow for "clipped corners" and off course there will be those who
will use this as a drawing-tool
