You can still use a separate image for :hover, etc., if using sprites  
is not a requirement.

It's also worth noting that with font embedding via @font-face, many  
of the needs to do CSS image replacement  go away, especially when you  
can combine that with text-shadow, RGBA colors (for translucency), etc.
