I used to forget about gradient interop issues with the `transparent` keyword all the time (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/30673204/css-linear-gradient-transparency-misbehaving-only-in-safari) and I know safari still doesn't "automagically" (https://twitter.com/tabatkins/status/1001885856716615680) treat the case described.

Is it possible that implementation of `transparent` isn't beyond tweaking the spec to *fix this?
