Questions from authors don't give you enough information to be sure
that the feature being added is sufficient for the author's needs.
You need to examine actual sites that they've created to be sure
that the feature is sufficient.  And if there's not enough demand
from authors that they're doing this with images and/or
border-images in significant numbers, I don't think there's enough
demand to ask that it be put into CSS as its own feature, requiring
substantial addition of implementation complexity (e.g., clipping
regions of those shapes, etc.).
