Yes, I'd like proof. I'd like to see how you would create a repeating  
pattern (where more tiles are visible, and undistorted, when the box  
is bigger), and have that entire background painting area fade from  
"pure" tiles at the bottom to solid white at the top. In other words,  
like this in the current draft:

background-image: linear-gradient(90deg,transparent,white), url 
(ball.png);
background-repeat: no-repeat; repeat;
background-origin: border-box;
background-size: auto;
