Why does this have to be a transformed child of a container? I am now 
getting lost in what is allowed and what should not be allowed.

Here is a demo [1] of one of Brad's gradient demos [2] which can not be 
done by 'rotate background tile' since 'rotate background tile' is not 
in the spec. In this example, element() point to a container element. 
This is the same with my recent demo [3].

To be able to do any of the above would be greatly welcomed.

This demo [4] is what I consider abuse of CSS3 animation with element() 
but if done sanely, certain things are possible if done with this approach.
