Now CSS Backgrounds and Borders Module Level 3 working draft says that you  
can specify color only on final background layer. It could be reasonable  
because one can see nothing under the solid colored background. But there  
is one option that left forgotten: semi-transparent colors, which can be  
defined with hsla or rgba.

Imagine, I may want to place a picture on background, then blend it by  
semitransparent black or white, and place some picture on top. I can't do  
it now with current background syntax and I believe that the specification  
must allow this scenario.

Of course, I can fake semitransparent color by a special cooked picture  
but is it what CSS is called to avoid, isn't it?

Sincerely yours,
Lev Solntsev.
