Most likely, we'd restrict it at the syntax level so that you can't
specify mixed offsets.  That avoids the problem entirely.

On the other hand, since it seems like we're going to have to specify
bg-pos-x/y (which implicitly set the top/left offsets), it might not

dictating which positioning mode should be preferred when there is a
