It would probably make sense first JUST to standardize what all browsers except for Firefox ALREADY support, and then add brand new features like `x-start` (which NO browser supports yet).

The only reason why `background-position-x/-y` (in their state already implemented in other browsers) is not implemented in Firefox/Gecko [1] is JUST because the feature was nonstandard. And it unlikely makes sense to postpone mostly supported functionality for years due to that absolutely unsupported new features are not yet ready to become standard.
