I'm not sure if we want to normalize this value, as it likely to lead to trouble and opens jQuery up to the possibility of more bugs and slowness to normalize here.

However, I'll bring it up for discussion in 1.9. Thanks for the report!

Is there a reasonable value for everyone to return? If so what would it be? Could we just have a lookup table that turns "transparent" into an RGBA value?

-1, this belongs in the color plugin but not in core.

Someone's got to give gibson042 access to the official voting widget and have him revote!

-1, same reasons as gibson042. I'd like to avoid future "normalization" of the results of gCS

-1, agreed

-1, With jQuery.Color, you can just add

 $.Color( element, "background-color" ).is( "transparent" ) 
-- both rgba(0,0,0,0) and transparent are valid responses for "transparent"
