The primary use I'll be putting border-image to will be fancy buttons,
but I expect that when I use it for other things, I'll primarily want
a transparent background.  While it's not a huge issue to core out an
image and save it in a format that supports transparency, it's still
additional work.  I would appreciate the ability to switch it on or
off.  I have no personal preference on whether we make it on or off by
default; since the largest use-case is probably fancy buttons (at
least initially), it should probably be on by default, and thus we
would have an 'empty' keyword to turn the center background off.
