The extra features come "for free" because `image()` also takes images referenced via `url()`. So, in that regard it makes sense to merge `element()` into `url()`.

Though I just realized another little downside of merging it into `url()`. `element()` (or `selector()`, see #5811) might allow different selectors than just ID selectors in the future. Those can't be expressed via `url()`.
