It would be a slightly more elegant way.
I agree that you'd be able to do it by rendering the SVG at different
scaling factors, slicing that image and then draw the border.

If there was a 'brush' element, the UA could render corners and edges
separately and then tile them

SVG elements don't have 'borders' like HTML. SVG's graphical elements have
a 'shape' and this shape could be have a brush (= like a border) applied to
it.
