I think I'm following now. If so don't you mean this instead.

background: red / transparent url(...);

Where the element shows the red background until the image is loaded and 
then the transparent background is used instead. If the image format is 
not supported or a 404 happens, then the initial fall back color is used 
always. For me fall back is movement to the left (backwards).
