This was actually in an earlier draft (slightly different, less workable)  
of the background module. It was like

   url(foo)/100% auto

... that of course has some issues of how it works together with  
background-position but it's kind of nice as it clearly shows it's related  
to resource being loaded... (I assume background-size doesn't affect the  
rest of the background for now.)
