I still think this is critical (from the second link)...
# I'm saying [getting] serialization troubles under control is more important (IMO)
# than adding background-position-x and background-position-y.  Can they
# progress on parallel tracks?  Sure.  But making serialization harder
# by adding more complexity just seems like, again, the wrong path to take.
... but nobody seems to want to prioritize putting the foundation on the house before redecorating the kitchen.


IMO, this is a great example of why spec development in CSSWG needs to be more focused.  It seems like we're writing independent chapters of a mystery novel in parallel and each individual chapter's author wants to write the back-story of the main character at the same time and in ways that are conflicting.


Ok, I'm done with metaphors for at least an hour.
