No, and that would be rather surprising. Under this model, if you want
to modify the opacity of a whole sub-tree uniformly, you would have to
modify the opacity property of each and every element in it, and you'd
expect that you can decrease the opacity of a child element relative
to its parent, whereas this thread is about not being able to do that.
