Sure. All mobile gawker properties are affected (m.gawker.com,  
m.gizmodo.com,
m.lifehacker.com...). The smartphone version of google's search page used  
it
for a while too (it appears to be gone now). In both cases, it is used for
spriting purposes, and not supporting it makes the page ugly and
dysfunctional.

I have also pasted at the bottom of this mail a list of sites out of  
alexa's
top 10000 that grep positively to background-position-(x|y). Not all of  
these
are broken due in browsers that don't support the properties, but it  
illustrates
that the cat is out of the bag.

I have no strong opinion about this. If it can be done in the current level
without delaying it, why not. Otherwise, next level is fine.
