It isn't clear why being able to say | | rgba (36, #bc, 0.7, 112%) is very valuable. Does it matter? It would be best that UA's not discriminate, since each value has to have its own identifier, why can't they all have different identifiers, why allow people to: rgba( 10%, 20, 30, 40 ) hoping that a UA will take all in percent. A stupid mistake unless the spec clearly states one or the other... that is why it would be nice if the spec states: "There is no guarantee that all values are represented in the same format; users may mix and mingle types since all values much each have a type identifier."
