I thought I had.  

You can't contrast radial-gradient with angle-gradient, because the latter is actually a linear-gradient.  And having a third called linear-gradient would be even more confusing.  Which is why I suggested
radial-gradient
linear-box-gradient
linear-angle-gradient

wordy as they are.
