Yes.  I'd encourage to make a uniform specification/interface toward
Emacs 23.2 or later, in order to avoid compatibility problems in
future.  The current alpha-comonent spec in NS is incompatible with
that of XRenderParseColor for example, and such things happen if
platform-independence is not in mind from the beginning.

Even with the uniform spec, there are some glitches in the NS
implementation as reported to the Emacs.app devel list.  So, it's a
good chance to defer the bug fixes for the alpha-component support by
dropping it so as to allocate more time for more important fixes at
this timing.
