Great writeup. I think we still have some details to work out here,
but overall I would also like to see this put in the spec. So unless
we get major objections here (which seems unlikely given that roc and
hyatt agree), I intend to do exactly that. :-)

BTW, I did get a suggestion over IRC that maybe border-image should be
a shorthand for multiple properties, e.g.
   background-image-source: <url>
   background-image-slice: <integer>{1,4}
   background-image-widths: <length>{1,4}
   background-image-outset: <length>{1,4}
Seems useful if you want to flip the image back and forth without
changing the sizes, but other than that I have no comment atm.
