Then you always have to set two properties. Is it worth considering making  
border-image a special form of border-style? That does not work for the  
border-*-style properties, but the same applies to resetting border-image  
by setting border. As a bonus it would make it easier to allow specifying  
some kind of fallback in case the image fails to load, cannot be decoded,  
is not supported, etc.
