Tab, I brought this up previously.

Can we get an informative note or some-such making reference to the fact that <bg-position> of "Backgrounds 3 CR" has been renamed to <position> in EDs, and that Images is matching that new token?  Connecting these subtle dots will likely be helpful for the 3rd+ people to discover this inconsistency.
