Exactly. At which point I wonder what else authors might want; then what
we do when authors really start playing with border-image and want the same
capabilities in that context.

Maybe I'm not following this one. What do you mean by orientation here ?

If the image definition says 'use the image at this URL, make it 100x100 then 
rotate 15 degrees' and the image bounding box adjusts for the transform, wouldn't 
it tile as you expect ? Or are you referring to something else entirely ?
