Yes. Changing the part here [1] regarding example 23 and the second note 
that discusses premultiplied color space.

Giving an example of how to create a gradient from color to 
transparent-color like so:

   linear-gradient(red, rgba(255,0,0,0))

   linear-gradient(red, rgba(255,0,0,0) 50%, rgba(0,0,255,0) 50%, blue)


Possibly consider a new way to trigger transparent-color:

   linear-gradient(red, pre-transparent)

   linear-gradient(red, pre-transparent, blue)

What would you fix in FF and what is WK?

I would volunteer to create examples for gradients.


Regarding transitioning of color. Maybe dealing with issue 7 [2]. If 
pre-transparent ever becomes a reality, then this is not an issue 
anymore and can be changed before transition is _un-prefixed_.
