It's in CR. That's as far as it can get along the W3C track until it gets 
a decent test suite and two compliant implementations. (It's as far as 
CSS1, CSS2, CSS2.1, HTML4, etc, have reached.)

It's supported by Mozilla and Safari, I believe.

You didn't say "IE doesn't provide a standard way of doing it", you said 
"CSS doesn't currently provide a way to implement opacity". That's untrue, 
and is all I was correcting.
