Re: [css-color] Have you considered standardizing a rgba(#RRGGBB, <alpha-value>) notation?

The first one seems to mean that the red channel is set to 3/4 of the alpha (opacity) channel. I don't know what the second one is supposed to mean. 

If you want to set channels independently, I think it should be something like this: 

r(255); a(0.5);
rgba(255, *, *, 0.5)
r(#ff); a(#7f);
rgba(#ff, *, *, #7f)

Or various combinations of the above.
