    Another possibility is to rename what's now 'background-origin' to 
'background-edge' or 'background-bound' (which seems to be what it's 
really about) and then have a brand-new 'background-origin' that is 
actually used to define the origin corner.  The horizontal and 
vertical offset values defined in 'background-position' would then be 
calculated from the corner defined in 'background-origin', which 
would default to 'top left' or 'top-left' or whatever.
