I like it the way it is (if I have read it right). When you understand it, it 
is rather logical. Just poorly explained in the standard.
But more importantly that is the way it is already implemented and working in 
current browsers.

Well, I see no problem in supporting these uses using new properties in CSS 3, 
but since we don't have the 'fit' or 'image-scaling' syntax yet, it would 
rather leave it be for CSS 2.1
