I tend to agree, and I'm very happy to hear that Gecko is fixing this to reliably allow vector border images.  But I'm ambivalent. SVG border-image is not as convenient for changing the corner size without changing the border size, or changing color easily. But maybe this will be fixed with the SVG parameters feature (which I have not checked out recently to know how far along it is, or if it is in the process of being implemented).
