Fantasai's original comment that started all your disagreement was that she wasn't aware of any use cases other than this "hack" use. If there are more compelling reasons, or even if the reason is that all the major Web browsers are doing it anyway without any problems, then we need to consider that (for CSS4 backgrounds, most likely).

Agreed here.  I'm definitely not opposed to adding -x or -y, I just
don't consider it worthwhile based on the "making spriting easier"
use-case.  I would probably be okay with adding it for B&B4 if
everyone's already doing it.
