That seems far more complicated than what we currently have. By writing it
as a 'gradient' rule you don't benefit background-clip, background-position,
background-repeat, multiple backgrounds, and falling back to a background
image. It's not extensible to other kinds of gradients, and doesn't handle
repeating gradients. And even so,

{ gradient: white #666 -90deg; }

and


> { gradient: #ffffff 0%, #666666 100% 270deg; }

seem much less clear than
background: linear-gradient(top, white, bottom, #666);
or even
background: linear-gradient(top, bottom, from(white), to(#666);

own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah
