So if it is just for border-image and background, and doesn't make sense when 'border-image-repeat' and 'background-repeat' values other than 'repeat' are used, then that is where it should be authored. It would be more like adjusting the margin than like adjusting actual 'width' and 'height' values.

No, actually, there's a use case for rounding values to the nearest 'em'
in East Asian contexts. Also, you can't automatically handle rounding
the height for borders and backgrounds if you have different tile sizes
for different backgrounds or border-image: how can you tell which size
to use?

Also, this has some very interesting layout impacts, so it shouldn't
be specified in Backgrounds and Borders. (Margin collapsing, for example,
is impacted.)

I have a Tracker instance I've been dumping things into:
   http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/Tracker/products/20

But like I said, I don't think it goes there.
