We've published a new official Working Draft of the CSS
Backgrounds and Borders Module Level 3:
   http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-background/

Some major changes from the last draft include:

     * Updated shorthand syntax for border-radius
     * New background-position syntax for positioning offsets
       from corners other than the top left
     * Spread values for box-shadow
     * Inner shadows
     * Fallback background colors
     * A no-clip value for background-clip
     * cover and contain values for background-size that
       proportionally stretch the background image to either
       cover or be contained by the entire background area
     * New syntax for the background shorthand
     * Numerous clarifications and improvements in the
       definitions of these properties

Check it out and send us some feedback. This draft is in the
stabilizing phase: the next publication should be the last
one before Candidate Rec, and we'd rather get your comments
this round. The plan is to do some more polish work, respond
to comments and suggestions, and then publish a Last Call
with this feature set near the end of the year.
