I can't, really, at least not as-is. Nor do I see them as being useful for
'list-style-image', 'cursor' or 'content'.

Orthogonality is cool, but actual use-cases beyond 'background' seem pretty
thin. If we have trouble specifying the behaviour of gradients for those
other properties (because there's no natural size to use for the gradient,
perhaps), I think we could just disallow them.
