If two implementations support a property, it is possible for it to 
become a standard. The following is supported in IE8+.


-ms-background-position-x
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms530719%28v=VS.85%29.aspx


-ms-background-position-y
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms530720%28v=VS.85%29.aspx


I would like to see your use cases.
