Well, that’s kind of my point: The image and flash object are incomplete 
for UAs that support css3-background.

In CSS 2.1, the background painting area (although the concept is not 
named) is always the border area of a box. This is what (among other 
things) the image of flash object describe.

css3-background normatively and unambiguously redefines the concept.

I still think it’s redundant, but would it address your concern to add a 
note like this in the definition of background-clip?
