Ok, so your concern is whether we should change how the angle syntax renders?

Because "strictly corner-to-corner or side-to-side" is all that CSS3 Gradients keywords have represented since I've started looking at the EDs/WDs.

My proposal was to produce the "magic rendering" by mapping the side and corner keyword syntax to an angle appropriate for the ratio of the associated box, and then rendering *exactly* with the angle algorithm that's already documented in the spec.

Presumably I'm missing something w/r/t your consternation.

I meant any gradient that's not either strictly corner-to-corner or side-to-side; anything with an angle other than those 8, or with a start/endpoint not exactly lined up with the side/corner.
