The new arrays in the CSS-OM could have plural names.
Setting a value for backgroundImages[0] would also set
a value for backgroundImage.

This is similar to how setting a value for
element.style.background can also set values for
element.style.backgroundImage,
element.style.backgroundColor, etc.

This method would also make testing for support of
multiple backgrounds easier.

Alternatively, the UA could just grab any assignments
to backgroudImage and automatically set it to
backgroundImage[0]. It's going to have to examin all
assignments anyway.
