I don't know that I agree with this reasoning - image-fit is only a
single choice among four keywords, and image-position is just a
slightly simplified version of bg-position (which is strange, actually
- it should probably just reference bg-position directly so it can use
the full syntax).  Combining them wouldn't be that complex.

However, I agree that they shouldn't be merged.

I agree.  (2) is my preferred solution as well.  It also seems to be
what SVGWG likes.
