I would also have assumed that the "t17-diagonal.png" rendering in [1] is  
what css3-backgrounds attempts to specify. I really can't imagine how one  
would arrive at t17-ray.png - what is the underlying CSS assumed to be,  
"border: 50px solid; border-color: red lime blue yellow; border-radius:  
20px/90px" or thereabouts?

I disagree that the spec is "pretty clear" on this point, though.

"The center of color and style transitions between adjoining borders is at  
the point on the curve"

Which curve?

"that is at an angle that is proportional to the ratio of the border  

An angle relative to what, in what direction? Proportional how exactly?

"For example, [...] if the top is twice the width of the right the point  
is at a 30° angle from the horizontal."

That seems just wrong.
