Actually there is a problem, which is that external resource document loads
and image loads are different beasts right now and are implemented somewhat
differently in Gecko, and it would be a lot of work to determine if they can
be made perfectly consistent. One issue is that we impose a same-origin
restriction on SVG external resource loads, but not CSS image loads
obviously.

Maybe we can get away with saying that url() with a fragment reference is an
external resource document load, and url() without a fragment reference is
an image load.
