[css4-images] First draft of css4-images, feedback requested

Heya, I've finished up the first draft of Image Values level 4
<http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css4-images>, incorporating several of the
features we punted from level 3 and a few new ones.  I'd greatly
appreciate feedback on the changes so we can potentially do a FPWD
after the f2f.

Here's the list of changes I've made:

* Added the ltr/rtl stuff back to image()
* Added element() back (moz implementation already exists)
* Added image-set() (safari implementation already exists)
* Added conic-gradient() function
* Sketched addition of the ability to move the focus in
radial-gradient, a la -webkit-gradient()
* Added an optional second location to color-stop, for easier
"stripes" in gradients
* Added 'from-image' to 'image-orientation', for automatic EXIF handling
* Added the 'image-rendering' property back
* Added (old) versions of the Interpolation and Serialization chapters
back. These need serious updating.

I'd particularly like to focus on element() and image-set(), as they
already have implementations in browsers.  I'm willing to to punt the
rest again to level 5 if I can get consensus on those two fairly
quickly, so discussion about them and suggestions for how to finish
them off would be greatly appreciated.

I'd like to take some time at the f2f to talk about element() and
image-set(), in particular.  I have a list of issues for image-set()
already in the draft, and I'll be compiling a list of my element()
issues into the draft as well.
