Hi,

This has been discussed several times already, but I'd like to
have another go at it.

http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/Tracker/issues/9

Three browsers / two engines (trident and webkit) support
background-position-x and background-position-y, and do so
unprefixed.

I can be receptive for arguments about not doing this. And
to arguments about doing it. But saying it shouldn't be
specified and implementing it at the same time makes me
a sad panda.

While not extremely common, it is not all that rare either
in the wild, and our (standard compliant) lack of support
for it causes breakage. Outreach to let authors know of
their errors has not been very successful on this one,
with authors telling us that the fix should be on our
side, as they are not under the impression that they
are using something out of ordinary.

If people against it can convince people shipping it to
drop support, I'd be satisfied, as that would force
authors to move back to standard compliant ways
of doing the same thing.

Since I doubt this will happen, I'd like to have it
specified.
