As for the mapping (from 0-255 to 0-1 float), this might be well based in
part off how UA's currently store the Alpha value. If a decimal is actually
rounded to a hex value and used like that.... great. I think 0x80 should map
to 0.50196078431372548 then. But if alpha values are actually stored as
floats, we really would be taking some (minimal) freedom away from the
developer, so I feel it's a bit more open to discussion how it should be
handeled. Could someone explain how UA's handle these?

~6 out of 5 statisticians say that the number of statistics that either make
no sense or use ridiculous timescales at all has dropped over 164% in the
last 5.62474396842 years.
