By the way, the visual result of using negative offsets is that it  
would reveal whatever is behind the now invisible border-style border.  
Since that one is still staking up space, it would be similar to  
having a zero opacity border there, with the images of the image- 
border moved inward to reveal that fact. Its a little odd, but  
probably doesn't add much complexity at all to the rendering, so I  
don't see any reason to prevent it.
