Heya Rik!

The spec is still open for review; at the moment we have only a single
experimental implementation, though I think the spec itself is mature
and ready for wide implementation now.

I'd be happy to hear your feedback, though, and see if there's
anything important missing that I should be addressing.  Note as well,
though, that CSS gradients are purposely intended to be fairly simple;
more complex gradients are reserved for SVG.
