Depends on the future. But for such a small patch, a new flag seems to be overdone. I looked into the patch, and adding the flag caused more code, then the actual feature (even if the computed style is missing). I believe we should remove the flag ASAP. Flags are for bigger new features of features that likely will change IMO. Both seems not to be the case for background-position.
