Currently http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-images-3/#the-image-orientation is 
explicitly specified to not affect background images.  However, a use 
case was brought up that really wants orientation based on EXIF metadata 
for backgrounds: user-provided wallpapers in web apps.

I'm not saying we should make image-orientation apply to backgrounds, 
but we need some mechanism (e.g. via image()?) for having backgrounds 
that respect EXIF metadata...
