OK, and the order of bg-position, the slash, and bg-size should also  
be fixed, the way I was imagining it working.

True, but I don't see why that's a problem. It is still  an example of  
a slash without something [other than another slash and content on the  
other side of THAT slash] before it.

As I see it working for background, it would be  separating two parts  
of a fixed-order sequence, in which you could still drop other parts  
in, as long as size could only be included if it was somewhere to the  
right of a slash.
