As @Loirooriol says, we can't change the value now. :( You'll need a time machine for that... the default was chosen because when CSS was first proposed, tiling backgrounds were much more common. (Images large enough to cover the whole page would have been prohibitively expensive to load.) But I've now added it to the list of mistakes: https://wiki.csswg.org/ideas/mistakes
