Introduction

CSS Backgrounds and borders defines a way to create a scale 9 image: http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-background/#border-images I propose to extend this feature to SVG, but instead of slicing an image, we would define a new tag <brush>.

This brush can be set as the color of the stroke. The stroke width would affect the scaling of the brush element.

Examples of border brushes in Illustrator

A simple google search for border image

Example how the sides start to tile when resizing the path

proposed markup

example:

  <brush id="mybrush">
        <corner bbox="...">
         ...
     </corner>
     <side bbox="...">
     ...
     </side>

corner and side can contain any path data but can only solid colors. This is because if will be too hard to deform images and gradients along a path,
