That seems like it would be a popular and more acceptable solution in many instances, compared to stretching the border image (i.e. when the box doesn't even have a specific size to begin with).  Admittedly, it changes the size of the content box, which is unusual, but perhaps a specific width/height given to the box would over-ride this option (as would a max-height/max-width, whereas a min-height or min-width would not).

Probably a round() function for 'width' and 'height' would make more sense
here than an 'extend' keyword for background-repeat. :) I'll add it to the
notes for CSS4 Values and Units.
