I think those tests can be fixed. Since most of major browsers return "transparent", it's sensible for us to conform to the de-facto standard. Otherwise, Web developers have to keep adding a special case for the WebKit.

> FF3.6 and Opera 10.6 return "transparent" in the test case. Not sure that we can fix this though given the compatibility issue. We could try to convince Firefox/Opera to switch to returning rgba in this case? It's worth filing bugs with them at least to see if they'd be willing to given that there are pages that depend on this behavior.

I'm not sure if convincing two other UAs to WebKit's behavior is a sensible thing to do given the total market share of FF and Opera compared to that of ours.
