Why wouldn't something simple like
"background-color:
gradient(red,orange,rgb(100,100,100),yellow)"
be good enough?

It's true that many people will want something much
fancier and so instead will use an SVG image with
background-stretch/zoom/size/whatever, so it might
seem a bit pointless. However, it would still be nice
if such simple gradients like fading from color to
color at the corners didn't require making an aditonal
HTTP request or including a data URI in the styling.
