Please take a look at image.c in the PNG area: it includes quite a few
references to "transparent" and what we should be/are doing with that.

I don't think I understand the feature you want to request.  Please
don't forget that the same PNG image can be displayed on places that
have different background colors.  I also don't think I see the use
cases for such images in Emacs.
