You mean because having the bg-positions to start and stop on is  
essentially creating a new box with it's own internal dimensions of  
0%-100% and 0px or more? You thinking you can just create a second  
background thats as small as that box? I was think of that too, but  
the gradation actually needs to keep going on all four sides of that  
box, even at odd angles, so I don't think that'd work.
