Hmm, I think changing only the opacity have much more practical use 
compared to changing a separate color component. Color components 
could be many, depending on the color models supported, while the 
opacity is pretty distinct and independent feature.

CSS doesn't cook, doesn't wash the dishes, etc. :-)
