Hi Robert,

it's great to see some work on this. Just a few questions.

Overall the wording would probably need some tweaking but it looks  
good to me. This is probably a no-brainer but have you taken into  
account the way SVG backgrounds work in Opera? Presumably it does  
something similar, and it would be nice to have agreement right out of  
the box.

I'll let the W3C people answer this one, but in the past it's happened  
that different WGs have undertaken joint work. So long as they have  
the same patent policy and agree on a process to push the spec out, it  
shouldn't be too huge a hurdle.

Any downsides to a preference that's off by default?
