Adding more threads on the same exact topic does not improve anything. 

A blend from one color to transparent in a single direction, which doesn't go around corners or base the starting starting and ending points on the entire size and  the shape of the element is called a linear gradient. The rate of blend between two color stops may be more even in a gradient, but an algorithmic progression can be simulated well enough over small spaces by adding more stops, as can spread. 

It seems like you just like the syntax of box-shadow to be be useable in more linear-gradient-like situations. But that doesn't seem like a good enough reason to complicate box-shadow, when there are already very workable solutions to your problem. Opening the same subject in multiple threads is not the answer to lack of interest.
