[theme-reviewers] Something we need to check for 3.4 appearance -> background

*no way*

Load up several of the style override plugins and give it a try.

style.css -> sets background-image:  (not seen anymore)

override plugin -> sets background-image: (not seen anymore)

THEN COMES the code from the appearance -> background  (now seen)

If you use your method:

style.css -> (still not seen)
override plugin -> (still not seen)
background-image: none;  (no background image at all ever)

The way I describe

style.css -> reverts to what is set if any
(if) override plugin -> sets background-image (seen)
no custom-background and no background-image: none; to stop the above from 
being valid fallbacks.

I'm sorry to be blunt, but that doesn't make a lick of sense.

If you don't do it right, then the user has *no way* to remove the
background image short of editing your theme and removing your
incorrect CSS. Not the desired outcome, I'd say.
