At least. At worst, the raster image will be no worse that images with  
the "stretch" keyword. If authors are concerned, they can build more  
resolution into their source images, or have them scaled down in  
'border-image-width'.

Or, alternately, we could favor reductions by having any space that  
was less than say 25% of a tile size result in widening, and  
everything else resulting in width reduction.
