On that note: http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-color/#numerical says
"transparent" is short for rgba(0, 0, 0, 0).  Wouldn't it be better to
say it's short for rgba(255, 255, 255, 0)?  I'm not trying to quibble. 
I'm just envisioning a day when this is all DOM-ized and someone wants
to do

document.getElementById(...).style.backgroundColor.opacity = 0.5;

and I'd rather a "transparent" element opacify to white rather than to
black.
