@leaverou what I proposed is that the commas are separating compound 
values in a list of fallbacks (color() values, not complete functional
 notations of `color()`). So if they are used for that, then they 
shouldn't be used within each compound value in that list. That would 
be confusing, and harder to read. So a slash would be a separator of 
the sub-value groups, to group and separate the color channels from 
the alpha and/or profile identifier. 

Maybe a separator would not be necessary for the profile identifier, 
but it would help distinguish the alpha from the other component 
values (without making the alpha seem like a separate item in the list
 of fallbacks). 

Once you do have a slash, you can put alpha and profile identifier on 
one side of the slash, and color channels on the other.
