I would love to see this be the default. The 'transfer' of the alpha
channel to the mask feels very intuitive to me since I'm familiar with
the concept of layer masks. I want to edit the layer's transparency.
That's what the mask is for. Having this additional concept of a
separate alpha channel is somehow confusing I would say.
