Given that the sorts of effects you're talking about can be created
with images, I think if you want to make a case that is at all
credible, you need to point to substantial numbers of existing pages
on the Web that are using images to create the sort of effect that
you'd like to be possible using this new CSS feature, and
demonstrate that what they're doing can be achieved with the same
level of quality (e.g., without the corners coming out wrong) with
the proposed new CSS feature.
