I do that. The problem is that you have *4* corners, not 2 ;-) that's 
why it forces you to use two elements, so that you can have the top 
corner be the :before of the first and the bottom corner to be the 
:before of the second.

That's my favorite example of why CSS is not powerful enough for what 
people need.
