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

Then what is stopping you from creating your own callback to specify a 
background-image: none;  ?

Or even writing a patch that has a button to enable a none background image 
that keeps the custom-background class and style ?

Just clearing the background image, "remove image"  should coincide with its 
utilization and effect in the same manner that not assigning default 
$arguments presents.   Which it now currently does.

I would like to read more thoughts on how to make what you want happen with 
giving the ability to the end user to have no-image other then removing of 
all settings in the appearance -> background section of the wp-admin.

I am sure there could be other methods implemented including that of a 
button in the wp-admin -> appearance -> background.

Correct, however those are handled by the callback, which can be
redefined via the wp-head-callback argument, if you so choose.

Yes, it is, because if a background is assigned to the body class,
then removal of that background is no longer possible. If you add a
background element to the body in the stylesheet, then you are not
implementing the custom-background functionality properly.

Probably. Until then, the theme can implement those by creating their
own callback, if desired.
