I heard you. Did you hear that we can't work with this either ?

I'm attempting to defend authors, actually. They have enough interop pain to
deal with already without being opted into an experiment of each browser's 
definition of border gradient prettiness. 

The answer Elika is that I don't know. That's the whole "goddamn" point. I don't 
know anymore than you do and I've been looking at bloody gradients until I cried. 
I don't have any more psychic abilities than you do and have no idea what authors 
will want. I'm not even sure everyone on this mailing agrees what should be done.

I'll thus suggest again - and once again you will conveniently ignore it - that this 
entire discussion has simply established that this behavior is not suitable to be 
recommended in this level of the spec. And deserves experimentation on an opt-in basis. 

I'm also not going to sanction this tone with a response any longer.

I still would like to hear from the others who also had input about this feature the last
time it was brought up. And we also still want to hear how this recommendation will
be covered by the test suite.
