This seems likely; indeed, when I start Emacs like this:
$ emacs -Q --eval "(setq default-frame-alist '((alpha . 30)))"
and then type `C-x 5 2', the newly created frame has about the same
appearance as what I see after calling redirect-frame-focus.
(Interestingly, and something I failed to notice in my OP, the tooltips
generated from the transparent frame are not transparent; i.e., in the
case of my OP, only the tooltips of the first frame are transparent).
