Yeah, I think a new property like text-fill (that does most of what  
backgrounds do) might be better than what I've implemented.  In  
WebKit, I've already split text drawing into filling and stroking  
(with a separate text-fill-color property).  If that fill color became  
part of a larger shorthand, that might work.

I believe at one point David Baron was proposing generic fill rules  
that could be referenced (something that could combine gradient fills,  
pattern fills and color fills together) where colors are used.    
That's another possibility.
