I object to <url-token>.  Please instead use:

  <image-decl> = <string> [ snap? && <resolution> ]?
  <image-decl> = [ <string> | <url> ] [ snap? && <resolution> ]?

More generally, I do not think any CSS Level >=3 module should make any
modifications whatsoever to the tokenization rules in CSS 2.1.
