Hiya Charles,

I think we'll probably leave the gradient definitions with SVG:
you can use an SVG image to define the gradients (which gives you
a lot more flexibility than we could ever reasonably define in
CSS) and position it using the CSS3 Backgrounds and Borders
properties:
   http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-background/

More browsers are supporting SVG, so I expect we'll see SVG as
background images become a practical solution for gradient
backgrounds on the Web.
