I'm not sure if the two of you are at all discussing the same
feature.

I *think* what Brian is talking about is background-clip: no-clip,
which was in older-drafts of css3-background.  (I'm happy it was
removed.)

I *think* what Tab is talking about is extending the image larger
than its underlying size, which is sensible given the
'background-repeat: extend'.  This requires assuming that Tab's
sentence:
  # The effect of it is that it displays the entire image when an image
  # overflows the concrete object size. 
in http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2011Sep/0331.html
was actually the opposite of what he meant, and the proposal for
background-repeat: extend (which I've never actually seen) is
actually about extending the *image* when it doesn't fill the box.

But I'm not sure about either statement.
