Nope, they do not. We could have drawn it ourselves completely -- i.e.
with gradients, different kinds of borders, ... Control over color and
padding just isn't enough.

Yeah, that's true but that's because the design is broken, that's why we
have hacks in themes to support wider range of rounded corners for
entries and for progress bars (and have no rounded corners for
tooltips). Really, I'd be much more happy if you (speaking in general
second person) would work on fixing the design for gtk3 (so that we
could actually have the engines/themes draw on *transparent* canvas)
than working on e.g. gnome-shell... I don't think that rounded corners
for tooltips are that much needed to disallow engines drawing the
tooltips themselves. Er... sorry for the slight off-topic, I just
couldn't help it :(

That would be nice :-)
