Agreed, since that is basically the process I went through.  ^_^  I
started as a useful contributor, and eventually just wrote the first
draft of what would become the Gradients chapter of the Images spec.
You guys invited me in to actually edit that spec at that point.  Brad
Kemper went through a similar process, basically writing the current
version of border-image.
