If you would have SVG why do you need that strange (from SVG point of 
view) way of defining things like background brush named 
background-image and another [stroke] brush for some reason named as 

In CSS you just need something like background-repeat: fill | expand
and single image that will be that SVG image defining your
background/border layer.

I mean that you will need either one: SVG or that multi-image paradise.
For some reasons I do not see how SVG will play with e.g. border-image 
thing. So, Bert, could you elaborate on what you expect from scaling of 
SVG files on border-image and background-image?
