Thanks Tab, yes, that's what I meant. However, I'm not sure if we're 
stuck with <image> defaulting to alpha since I think we don't need to 
follow -webkit-mask exactly do we?

Note that I'm pretty sure -webkit-mask uses alpha for <gradient> values 
(i.e. vector data) and SVG images.

Thanks,

Brian
