I think it is a bad idea to change rgb-color here: this is a recipe for
wide-reaching incompatibilities for the sake of limited applications.
It would make more sense to meddle with the type of the "transparent"
property, making it a boolean-or-number? for example.
If transparency is supposed to be made into a part of color, I think it
should rather be optional: see
<https://sourceforge.net/p/testlilyissues/issues/5162/#bd3f> for a
proposal in that regard.
However, I think that transparency is really something that tends to
have considerably different scope and application as color and is more
often than not applied in manners orthogonal to color, so keeping it in
a separate property might make for a lot less conflicts of use cases in
the long run.
