I got the @border attribute back into the spec - for instance, so I am 
not necessarily amongst "most people", then.

I have tried working with generated content and images, the way you 
suggested, and I have found it quite cumbersome. Whatever the method, I 
think it should be possible to included into the element and - as well 
- the resources should be relative to the page and not, like for CSS, 
relative to the stylesheet.

That's my take on it. I leave the bandwidth question to others.
