Huh?  RGBA is just a notation for a storage format, it says nothing
about how the components should or should-not-be interpreted.

The gimp, however (and emacs) needs to worry about such things
regardless, since in the end it's in charge of what the user sees;
hopefully there's helpful meta-data which says what to do...
