I don't think that this is a sensible approach in general. We currently use alpha to do proper antialiasing, compositing existing photos on top of each other and in all of these cases a coupled "alphacolor" (= color + alpha value) would be cumbersome and unhelpful. > Such metaphor is more accurate to real world and thus more appealing > to weekend artist (who would like to do some things in simple > manner). Note, that Gimp is not designed with the "weekend artist" in primary focus. But even taking him into account the current model has served us well for the last years and there has been very few discussion about this specific problem, if it cropped up it was in the context of indexed PNGs with "alphacolors" or generating textures for renderers. For the general public the current model seems to generally work and I don't see a compelling reason to change this.
