And if a gradient's background-size is smaller than the background-clip dimensions and has background-repeat:repeat, I expect the gradient box to repeat as an image would. (This could actually be quite useful.)

Yeah, I expect this too; I'm just saying that a gradient is normally
going to be the entire size of the background-clip area.  (To be
specific, it's the size of an SVG image without intrinsic dimensions
used in the same context.)
