Hi Al:

A graphic with discontiguous points is just another way to create a vector
mask.

The reason why a group with ink effects might be a preferable masking
solution is the image can be positioned/resized independently of the mask.
 This is demonstrated in the sample stack.  As Jacque pointed out, when
using a backPattern, the image is always drawn from the topLeft of the
object and is fixed.  Also a backPattern does not support translucency,
while a group can.  But using a group can be a bit more work.
