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.

major says everything IMO. background-position is not a major feature.

However, to stay at the topic: Is there anything blocking 'background-position' with the new syntax? Any objections to remove the flags? If yes, I would like to know more about the problems.
