I was trying to avoid "magic" default values, so was defaulting to top  
left.

Note that I was also trying to have the points follow the same  
shorthand rules as background-position, where an omitted value  
defaults to 'center'. So 'top' becomes 'center  top'.

I'd be OK with saying that if no points are specified, then the start  
point defaults to 'center top'.
