Thank you. I prefer rect() too. As I understand it, this:

background-position: rect(0 0 0 0);

will be:

background-origin: rect(0 0 0 0);

Giving the 'background-origin' property an extra value. This does make sense. My proposal was factored on the premise that 'background-origin' with just the values of 'border', 'padding' and 'content' was just to limiting. Adding the value 'rect()' for 'background-origin' makes this very powerful tool.

This now leaves 'background-position' with the maximine of two values with the ability to position a background image from any of the four corners of an element. Is this possible for inclusion in CSS3 Backgrounds and Borders?
