Regarding.

<http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/CR-css3-background-20091217/#background-position>


With a different thread about bidirectional flow [1]. Salar inquired 
about new values for background-position of start (was near) and end 
(was far) for for rtl. Jens Meiert also brought up this issue [2].


I would like to see the inclusion of background-position values of start 
and end that is analogous with float with values of left, right, start 
and end.


LTR text flow with background-position:

background-position: left analogous with background-position: start
background-position: right analogous with background-position: end

RTL text flow with background-position:

background-position: right analogous with background-position: start
background-position: left analogous with background-position: end



LTR text flow with float:

float: left analogous with float: start
float: right analogous with float: end

RTL text flow with float:

float: right analogous with float: start
float: left analogous with float: end
